LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Salvation Army's Angel Tree program is looking for Kentuckiana to step up as they are running low on donations.

The Angel Tree program is in its final week and wraps up on Dec. 8.

They still have about 7,000 angels left that need to be adopted.

If you adopt an angel you will get a list of things those less fortunate children need starting with the basics like clothes.

Organizers say they had to start the program earlier in 2013 due to a shorter shopping season.

"But because of how late thanksgiving fell this year we asked the malls to start a week earlier...they granted us that...but perhaps people weren't thinking about shopping at that point...so that might be a factor," David Yarmuth, director of community relations, said.

If you would like to adopt an angel you can go to Jefferson Mall, Green Tree Mall, Mall Saint Matthews and Oxmoor Center to get one.

You can drop off donations to the Salvation Army at the old Male High School building on Brook Street.
