Celebrate The Spirit Of Christmas!Salvation Army And AllOTSEGO Angel Tree Christmas - Celebrate The Spirit Of Christmas

The AllOTSEGO newspapers, The Freeman’s Journal and Hometown Oneonta, are joining with The Salvation Army to make a joyful Christmas for area families through its Angel Tree Program.

This tradition dates back to 1921 with the creation of The Freeman’s Journal Christmas Fund by Editor & Publisher Rowan D. Spraker Sr. as a way for neighbors to help others enjoy a happy holiday. This week marks the 95th year of this community tradition, partnering this year with The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army has gathered Christmas wish lists grouped by family which can be seen below.

Embrace one individual or an entire family. Every gift is appreciated. Shop by yourself or with friends and colleagues. The more the merrier! Gifts should be both new and unwrapped (price tags removed please), and received no later than Dec. 14 (to allow the elves time for wrapping and loading). Gifts may be dropped off at the newspaper offices at 21 Railroad Ave., Cooperstown, or at the Salvation Army Chapel, 25 River St., Oneonta.
