(MOBILE, Ala.) The Salvation Army is gearing up to distribute gifts that will go to kids in need this Christmas.
The deadline to turn in angel tree gifts is this Wednesday, but the Salvation Army says it's still waiting on more than 500 presents, or one fourth of what's needed, to be turned in to the group.
Mary Lollar's granddaughter Brianna is signed up to receive a present. She's hoping a bike with no training wheels will appear under the tree.
"It's not much for a little four year old to ask for, but it's more than I can do," said Lollar.
But there's a chance Brianna will not be peddling down the drive way Christmas morning, but not all the gifts have come in yet.
"Makes me nervous, very, very nervous. I mean what if she does wake up, and it's not there. You know, could that be possible?" said Lollar.
"They will receive something. We have some wonderful donors who provide toy drive gifts, and they may not get the wish that they wanted when the parents registered them but we do have toy drives, and we will be able to fill at least something for that child," said Salvation Army Major Susan Brown.
And even if Santa doesn't leave a bike under the tree, Lollar's still grateful that Brianna will have something to open this Christmas morning.
"I want to thank them deep from my heart and everyone that participates," said Lollar.
Roughly 2,000 children in Mobile and Baldwin Counties were accepted into the angel tree program this year. The deadline to turn in those presents, if you adopted an angel, is this Wednesday.
