Bringing College Students Christmas Joy
Every year The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps families in need throughout the USA Western Territory, but the last couple of years The Salvation Army Chico Corps has extended the program to include college students facing poverty and homelessness in the area.
For the last three years the Corps has worked with Chico State University’s Hungry Wildcats food pantry to sign up low-income students for an Angel Tree to receive items such as clothing, gas cards, bedding, and more.
Last year, the Chico Corps served 85 university students during the holidays. This year, however, the Chico Corps is expanding their program to include 3 Butte College campus in Chico, and the program has expanded to the Oroville Corps who has opened its Angel Tree to the children of Butte College students.
