No child ever chose to live in poverty. These are the "innocents." They are not responsible for their family's reduced circumstances, yet they must live each day of their young lives in ways that most of us would find appalling and unbearable.

The Angel Tree attempts to bring some sunshine into their dreary lives at Christmas time - a time when every other "good little boy or girl" they know receives a visit from Santa Claus. The Angel Tree provides much needed clothing items, special needs gifts and other wished-for toys to Knox County's (and surrounding metro area) neediest children.  These gifts in truth give poor children "food for the soul"-the hope of a brighter future and the reassurance that someone does indeed care about them. 

The Angel Tree only accepts children submitted through local agencies in Knox County and a few select agencies in surrounding counties. We do not accept individual requests. If it is too late to participate with the agencies that we work with (they submit registrations to us in August), we suggest you contact The Empty Stocking Fund, Toys for Tots or The Salvation Army to see if they are still taking applications.
