Annual “Tree of Love” kicks off this month

The annual charity effort to make the Christmas season better for disadvantaged kids in DeKalb County kicks off later this month.

The Tree of Love program creates wish lists for holiday gifts for low-income children as well as those in foster care. Residents can select names from the tree, to help make sure the children have something to open for the holidays.

The tree will be set up at South DeKalb Mall, 2801 Candler Road, near Decatur. The kickoff event will begin at noon Nov. 24 at the mall, with all gifts due back by Dec. 15.
