Angels are out for the annual Angel Tree program. The Salvation Army recently hosted its Angel Tree kickoff at Arvest Bank in Shawnee. Events included Captain Jamie Clay welcoming those in attendance with words of appreciation, while Women's Auxiliary President Dee Ann Shroyer gave a brief history of the Angel Tree.

Oklahoma Baptist University students performed music, OBU Director of Development Josh Trimble shared words of support and Angel Tree Chairperson Barbara Epple shared the locations that adopted a 2016 Angel Tree. Closing remarks were given by Captain Russell Clay. The Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas for children in need. For more information on Angel Trees, call the Shawnee Salvation Army, 275-2243.
