'Angel Tree' program to reach hundreds

December 21, 2012

A late surge of giving has allowed the local Salvation Army to help almost as many “angels” as it did last Christmas.

As they do annually at this time of year, Big Spring city officials have announced plans for helping local residents dispose of all the extra trash that accumulates in Christmas season.
