They’re celebrating at the Salvation Army in Grant County. Lieutenant Dana says all of the names of the Angel Tree kids have now been taken.
Bigelow says several families, organizations and anonymous individuals stepped up to adopt the remaining kids on the Angel Tree list. More than a thousand needy kids were on that list originally, and Bigelow says the generosity of local residents continues to overwhelm them.
But while Bigelow is rejoicing in the Angel Tree coming to a successful finish, she says the Red Kettle Campaign is actually running behind last year...and that campaign funds relief programs throughout the year for the Salvation Army.
