The Cherokee Nation stepped up in a big way to make sure needy children have a present to open come Christmas morning.

The tribe has its own angel tree with the names of at least 1,900 children on it.

Tuesday, Cherokee Nation Businesses presented a check for $20,000 to make sure each one of those Cherokee angels won't be forgotten.

The tribe has had an angel tree for the past 15 years, and thanks to donations like this, they've never had to turn a child away.

"The kids, you know, are our biggest asset. And to know that they're going to wake up Christmas morning and have a present where they might not have had one any other way, it means the world to us," said Cherokee Nation Chief Bill John Baker.

Organizers say a donation this makes all the difference in the world to their efforts.
