The Salvation Army has accepted 2,096 children into the Angel Tree program this year, an increase of several dozen from 2017.

The Salvation Army of Bryan-College Station has extended its application and interview dates for the Angel Tree program.

Interviews and application dates will now run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. No appointment is necessary, and walk-in applications are accepted at the Salvation Army at 2506 Cavitt Ave. in Bryan. The organization asks that children not be brought to the interview.

Among items needed for the application are valid photo identification, proof of income, proof of monthly expenses, documentation of all people (both children and adults) living at the address and proof of age for children age 12 or younger. Proof of citizenship is not required.

The program is open to families with children up to 12 years old. Beginning in mid-November, the Salvation Army will begin collecting gifts for the families. The families will receive gifts on Dec. 19.

The organization is also accepting volunteers. To find out more about the requirements of the Angel Tree program or how to volunteer, visit the office on Cavitt Avenue, call 361-0618 or visit www.salvationarmybcs.org.
