Salvation Army's "Angels" Deploy

      After a month of collecting gifts for more than 500 needy families in Amarillo, the Salvation Army distributed the presents today as part of its "Angel Tree" program. 
       Thirteen hundred local kids received toys, clothes and food today with the help of hundreds of volunteers from our community. 
     In November, the names, ages and genders of children were placed on a tree seen at Westgate Mall.

Since then, generous families have been choosing a needy child to help this holiday, and today families were given gifts to help brighten their holiday season.
Janet Lumen is with the Salvation Army. She told Newschnnel10 "Those who are in need who have fallen on hard times and don't know how their gonna buy christmas, they kinda get to a place of hopelessness, and when a program like this is available it gives them hope and encouragement and hopefully some smiles and some memories."
   The "Angel Tree" program is an effort that has been going on for 25 years in communities like ours across the nation.

    Drivers in downtown Amarillo could soon be dealing with fewer one-way streets. It all has to do with the parking garages going up on Buchanan Street. Cars will need to exit right and left on 7th and 8th Avenues, and right now it's against city ordinance to turn left out of any parking garage in the city. That will cause some problems when people try to exit the new parking garage onto, well, any street surrounding it. The city believes the solution to this problem, along with gett...
