INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The Salvation Army wants to know if you have room on your Christmas list for one more name. Through the generosity of Hoosiers, thousands could have a Merry Christmas!

Over seven thousand central Indiana children have registered with the Angel Tree program.

Donors are needed to "adopt" a child by picking an angel off the tree at an area mall or by adopting a child online at

Once adopted, the donor will receive a list of the child's wishes. The donor is expected to shop for the child and drop off the gifts at participating malls or at The Salvation Army's Divisional Headquarters at 6060 Castleway West Drive on Indy's northeast side.

Cash donations are also accepted through the website to help fill bags for "Forgotten Angels" that didn't get selected.

The deadline to adopt a child is December 7, 2019.

Participating malls:

  • Castleton Square
  • Greenwood Park
  • Fashion Mall

Larger groups and companies can adopt multiple angels. Information on how is available on the Angel Tree website.
