Morgan Wallen, a country music star and Tennessee native, spent $20,000 at a Memphis Walmart recently after adopting 200 angels from The Salvation Army of Memphis & the Mid-South’s Angel Tree program.
According to a news release issued by The Salvation Army of Memphis, Wallen and his team spent hours within the Walmart and filled 32 shopping carts with toys and clothes.
“For me growing up, my parents, they always made sure that I had presents under the tree. I know that all kids are not as fortunate to have that same experience,” Wallen said in the news release. “I got to partner up with The Salvation Army and Walmart to make a whole lot of kids happy this Christmas… I hope we get to do it again next year.”
He made the trip to Memphis to adopt the 200 angels in between his three sold-out shows at the Landers Center in Southaven over the weekend.
“Because of Wallen’s generosity, parents struggling this year with job loss, homelessness and the impact of the ongoing pandemic will be able to go to sleep on Christmas Eve knowing their children will wake up to gifts under the tree,” said Nina Harrelson, spokesperson for The Salvation Army of Memphis & the Mid-South, in the news release.
