'Field of Dreams' to provide for 'forgotten angels'

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Salvation Army is working to make sure every child gets a little piece of holiday cheer this year.

They want to cover LP Field with Christmas toys, but they need your help to get it done.

People can drop off toys at LP Field today from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. to help fulfill the dreams of many "forgotten children." The Salvation Army Forgotten Angel Program will benefit from the event.

The Salvation Army took applications for 10,000 "angels" - less fortunate children and elderly.

According to Lt. Col. Charles White, area commander for The Salvation Army, several hundred of those "angels" will not be adopted.

To ensure each child has a special Christmas, the Forgotten Angel shop will provide gifts.

"More than 8,000 toys were donated last year and we hope to see the same enthusiasm from the community this year," said White.

The "Field of Dreams" for Salvation Army's Forgotten Angels is sponsored by Cumulus Nashville radio stations 103.3 WKDF, 104-5 The Zone, Super Talk 99.7 WTN, i106, 92Q and 95.5 FM-WSM,
