The Salvation Army's Christmas Angel Program still needs some help fulfilling the wishes of thousands of needy Valley children.

There are children whose list could fit just about any budget.

"When people come and ask about the program, we tell them to choose and angel...choose two if they can... and do what they can for that child," said Major Marina Lacey with the Salvation Army.

Currently, there are approximately 4,800 children who have not been chosen by busy shoppers this season.

"These kids won't get Christmas," said Lacey.

The Salvation Army will continue to accept donations through the weekend.
