Applications to participate as an angel in this year’s Angel Tree program are available at Chickasaw Nation Area Offices and must be completed and returned before 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17.

Age, income and citizenship qualifications apply. Participating angels must be 17 years and younger, belong to a federally-recognized tribe and live within the boundaries of the Chickasaw Nation. Parents and guardians will  provide proof of citizenship, residents and income.

Income qualifications vary depending on family size.

Angel Tree is an annual holiday assistance program that allows community members to share gifts. Participant gift-givers can adopt an angel from a tree and provide listed items to specific children, maintaining the magic of the season.

Angel Trees found at area offices will include only Native American angels.

The program was originally established by the Salvation Army in 1979 and has since spread to organizations and communities who want to give back during the joyful season.

Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted. For more information, call the Pauls Valley area office at 405-207-9883. Visit the following locations to retrieve applications.
