During the Holiday Season, the Salvation Army in Casper holds the Angel Tree program.

The program aids low income families in providing their children with toys and clothing for Christmas. Families sign up ahead of time and items are collected during the month of December. The Casper Association of Student Social Workers volunteered this year on Saturday, December 20th, to help sort through the donations and organize them for each family.

"It's a great opportunity to help. It's awesome to see the generosity of our town."

-Brittney Fleming, ASSW Secretary, Class of 2015

Toys and other items were bagged, numbered, and organized to make the pickup process go smoothly. On Monday, December 22nd, students along with some of their children were able to pass out presents to over 450 families from the Angel Tree Program. Santa Claus was around all day and students were able to help families have a generous and joyous Christmas. Captain Cathy of the Salvation Army stated that Larissa Skinner, ASSW Vice President, was integral in getting the student volunteers together and helping the program be a success. Larissa Skinner said of helping hand out presents Monday, "We can see all the happy people and get a good perspective on the "good and happy" social work side of things."
