Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge needs space for Angel Tree Christmas Campaign

News

"The Salvation Army fears many in need in our community will go without this Christmas season."

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A Christmas tradition might be in jeopardy unless the Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge can find a space big enough to handle their needs.

The Angel Tree Christmas Campaign has been a tradition in the area since 1979.

According to the Salvation Army of Greater Baton Rouge, “A warehouse space of 25,000 ft. or larger is required to effectively operate the large influx of toys and gifts as well as distribute to Angels and their families.”

A space of that size is needed between November 1, 2021 and January 1, 2022.

Major Donald Tekautz, commander of The Salvation Army Greater Baton Rouge says, “For a program
that started back in 1979, it has grown immensely year after year which in turn means we need a larger
space to meet the needs of our Angels and their families. Baton Rouge has always been so great to The
Salvation Army, and we want an amazing Christmas season for the community this year.”

If you know of a warehouse space that could be used between November and January, please call the
Salvation Army Social Services Office at 225-246-2194.
