Carson City Salvation Army needs retail space for Angel Tree program
The Salvation Army expects to help more than 1,100 families for both Christmas presents for kids and a holiday meal basket through its Angel Tree Program this year.
The problem: It needs space.
The Salvation Army is looking for free warehouse/retail space where Angel Tree gifts can be sorted and distributed this holiday season.
The ideal place would be about 3,000 square feet or more, near a bus stop.
The nonprofit is hoping to secure a location by Oct. 20 and will need access to the site Dec. 1-23.
The donation will be considered a gift-in-kind for tax deduction purposes and the donor will receive recognition as a partner for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

The Salvation Army at 661 Colorado St. serves more than 18,000 people each year from Carson City and Douglas County helping with school supplies, emergency food, emergency lodging, utilities, holiday assistance, Summer Day Camp, Before School Care, and Summer Camp.
