Episode Description

Joyce welcomes The Salvation Army’s Treasures for Children Coordinator to the show. The Salvation Army's Treasures for Children program (Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, PA) strives to consistently provide hope and joy to families, especially children, in need at the most wonderful and blessed time of the year. Known in other regions of The Salvation Army as the "Angel Tree Program", Treasures for Children provides a personal experience for the donors because they are able to choose a specific child in need, represented on a tag. The Salvation Army is able to identify families in need of assistance through its Worship and Service Centers and other community organizations.
