FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

The Salvation Army in the Shoals is looking for people to help fulfill Christmas wishes for those less fortunate this holiday season.

Their Angel Tree has been set up for a full week now, and nearly 500 children have been adopted, but organizers said they still have a lot more angels left to adopt.

"Continue to come and adopt the angels. We did get off to a good start, but we still have several; we have over 1,600 children in our program this year, which is up at least 30 or 50 from last year," said the Salvation Army's Major Jean Wilson.

You can pick up angels from the Regency Square Mall in Florence, the SunTrust Bank off Court Street in Florence, and beginning Monday at the Walmart in Russellville.

All gifts are due back by Dec. 12.
