TULSA, Oklahoma -

Time is running out to guarantee a good Christmas for a child in need. There are still lots of angels on the Salvation Army Angel Trees who need adopting.

A local business has partnered with the Salvation Army to help what are called "forgotten angels."

The Vintage Pearl is a gift shop in the Plaza Shopping Center at 81st and Lewis. They've created a special partnership with the Salvation Army and its Angel Tree project again this year.

"Last year we provided gifts for 150 kids. This year we hope to do even more," said June Anne Wakley, Vintage Pearl.

Here's how it works: among the tree ornaments the shop has created is one called the Angel Love ornament.

Half of the purchase price goes directly to the Salvation Army so they can cover the forgotten ones.

Forgotten Angels is, they tell me, an official category - sad, but also true. The Angel Tree project began this year, with about 9,000 angels....with trees at both Woodland Hills and Promenade Malls.

Shoppers have been stopping by, picking up one or more angels to buy for . Then they go shopping - but sometimes the gifts never come back.

"Had good intentions of getting a gift, but it never really happened," Wakley said.

The Salvation Army tells us each year all the angels get adopted. Staffers go shopping at the last minute to cover the gifts that are not returned. That's what the money from the sale of these Angel Love ornaments will help support.

So $17.50 from the sale of each of each will help provide Christmas for someone you don't even know.

As of this morning - there are still more than 900 angels yet to be adopted.

If you'd like to help by picking up one of those Angel Love ornaments, the Vintage Pearl is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
