Angel-a-Thon raises $98,000; still time to help children in need

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A big thank you from WAVE 3 News and the Salvation Army. Because of viewers like you, thousands of less-fortunate children across Kentuckiana will have a Merry Christmas.

During Tuesday and Wednesday's Angel-a-Thon, $98,000 was raised, ensuring every angel will have clothes and toys under the tree.

There is still time to help. Four Louisville-area Walmarts have extended the Angel Tree deadline through Thursday.

Pick up an angel and drop off donations of new clothes and toys at one of the following Walmarts between noon and 9 p.m. on Wednesday or Thursday:

  • Hurstbourne Lane
  • Westport Road
  • Middletown
  • Bashford Manor

You can also provide a hot holiday meal for a family in need by picking up a Food Angel between now and Christmas Eve at any area Kroger.
