KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Many senior centers in Knox County are asking for the public to help senior citizens celebrate the holidays this year.

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program assists over 1500 needy children and seniors every year with Christmas gifts.

All of the Knox County Senior Centers (have an Angel Tree in their lobby with names and wishes of seniors in need.

The Office on Aging identified these seniors who have little means and very little support. The office said without the help of the Angel Trees they would otherwise not have much of a holiday season.
