Fairmont Medical Center helped brighten the Christmas of 75 children in 2022 and aims to surpass that number this year.

“We are excited to partner with the Salvation Army to bring this program to our community,” Cari Morgan, Fairmont Medical Center nurse director, said. “We know that many families are struggling this year, and we want to do our part to make sure that every child has a happy holiday.”

Families can register their children 12 years of age and younger at SAAngeltree.org before Oct. 31.

To adopt an angel, visit the Angel Tree located in the main lobby of Fairmont Medical Center and choose a tag between 6:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. beginning Nov. 6. The tag will list the child’s age, gender, and gift requests. Please follow the drop-off directions on the back of the angel tag.

A kick-off event will be held at 1 p.m. on Nov. 6 in the Fairmont Medical Center main lobby, and members of the public are invited to select their angels.
