New this year the Salvation Army will have an angel tree at Chick-Fil-A on Ross Clark Circle.

They will also have Angel Trees set up at the Wiregrass Commons Mall and Planet Fitness in Dothan.

Red kettles and bell ringers will be at more than 20 locations in Houston, Geneva and Henry County.

The Red Kettle program is a major source of funds for the Salvation Army.

The Angel Tree helps provide for families who cannot afford for themselves.

The Salvation Army has set a goal of $105,000 and 400 angels to adopt and Salvation Army Lieutenant Austin Sturdivant is confident the Wiregrass will meet the challenge.

"I have worked for the Salvation Army for about six years now and this community compared to other ones is just head and shoulders above with people pulling together and working together to provide for nonprofits," Sturdivant said.

The Salvation Army is still looking for volunteers to ring bells around the Wiregrass.
