Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Salvation Army's WAHU Stockings and Angel Tree programs.
Major Melinda Johnson joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk about the two programs, which help kids in our community during the holiday season.
WAHU Stockings focuses on an often forgotten age group, teens age 13-17 years old. You simply pick up a stocking and fill it with boy or girl holiday gifts. The deadline for WAHU Stockings is Dec. 14.
The Angel Tree program focuses on the younger children. Participants choose an angel off the tree and shop according to that child's wish list.
