Nearly 9,000 Toys Donated For Forgotten Angels

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nearly 9,000 toys were donated during Wednesday's Toy Field at LP Field for the Forgotten Angel program.

This year, the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program saw a record number of 17,000 children and elderly who signed up.

All the gifts collected at LP Field Wednesday will go to the children who were not adopted from the Angel Tree this year. Officials with the Salvation Army said this year with the record need, they had nearly 2,000 Angels still left on the trees.

If you weren't able to stop by LP Field there are still ways you can help.

"You can out a donation in the mail, or make a donation online by visiting http://www.salarmy-nashville.org, or you can stop by any shopping center and put a donation in the Red Kettle," said Lt. Col. Charles White with the Salvation Army.

Donations will also be accepted until December 16th at the Salvation Army headquarters in Nashville at 700 Cowen Street.
