Stillwater Salvation Army still has 20 angels on its tree

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Salvation Army received a big donation of games, toys and bikes Tuesday that will help provide gifts to more than 200 families on Christmas.

Capt. Trish Knott said the Salvation Army still has 20 angels that need adoption before Thursday morning when toys and holiday meals are distributed to families.

The angels range from infants to 12 years old, 65 and older, and the disabled of any age.

Starting at 9 a.m. Thursday, volunteers will be prepared to distribute to an estimated 60 families per hour until noon.

Volunteers — especially runners to help parents carry food boxes and gifts to cars — are needed at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

“Thursday is when the fun starts,” said Knott’s husband, Capt. Mike Knott.
