Make someone’s Christmas bright with Salvation Army’s Angel Tree campaign

Sponsored by Central Pacific Bank & the Salvation Army

You can make a person’s holiday wish come true by picking a tag on Angel Trees at malls across Hawaii or your nearest Central Pacific Bank branch. It’s part of the Salvation Army’s annual holiday giving campaign. President and CEO of Central Pacific Bank, Catherine Ngo, joined Salvation Army Captain Tammy Poe and Angel Tree recipient Rich Tagataese to share with Hawaii Now viewers how this program has impacted our community over the years, and also how you can help.

You can also make Christmas bright for someone who may be hurting this holiday season by just dropping off new, unwrapped gifts or monetary donations for the Angel Tree program at any Central Pacific Bank branch. These small gifts can create hope for those in need. Perhaps it’s a family struggling to make ends meet and gifts are not a priority. Or a senior who needs a small appliance like a rice cooker to help with meals. Donations help bring smiles to all on Christmas morning.

Angel Tree Program:
The Angel Tree program runs every holiday season to provide Christmas gifts to those in need.  Angel Trees are placed in various malls and in Central Pacific Bank locations. You are invited to pick an angel tag from the tree which corresponds to a child or senior with a special wish for Christmas, purchase the requested gift (or equivalent) and then return it to the same Angel Tree location with your tag. The Salvation Army will make sure that your gift is delivered to your chosen “Angel” before Christmas. Angel Tree locations include all Central Pacific Bank locations on all islands and on Oahu the Kahala Mall, Windward Mall, and Pearlridge Center.
