Celebrity Angel Tree Adoption!

’Tis the season! As part of holiday tradition and a commitment to the Dallas community, Josh Howard, forward for the Dallas Mavericks, adopts 100 angels from The Salvation Army Cedar Crest Angel Tree. Howard will provide Christmas gifts to all the adopted angels.

Howard grew up in a neighborhood similar to Cedar Crest where he was active at his local Salvation Army community center.

Howard and the Dallas Mavericks have given back to The Salvation Army Cedar Crest Community Center by renovating the center’s basketball gym.
