Wally’s Party Factory, the nation’s largest privately held chain of family-owned independent party supply and Halloween stores, is hosting an in-store angel tree that benefits Boles Children’s Home. Boles Children’s Home is one of two residential facilities that Arms of Home, a charitable organization, operates to help and support at-risk children and single mothers. Wally’s customers can share the Christmas spirit by visiting our Rockwall, Texas location, which is conveniently located at 1107 Ridge Road.

It’s simple to bring joy to a child in need. Just visit Wally’s in Rockwall, choose an angel from the tree, and purchase a new item requested by a child. Return the item in a gift bag with the angel attached by December 18th and it will be delivered to a child at Boles Children’s Home. Through the hands of volunteers, and the generosity of donors like you, children can feel the joy of gifts this Christmas.

“Our stores specialize in helping people celebrate special occasions and holidays. We are excited that, through the angle tree, we can give our customers and co-workers the chance to help the children at Boles have a very merry Christmas” says Walter Erwin, President of Wally’s Party Factory. “Our Rockwall team of volunteers is looking forward to collecting and distributing the gifts, and meeting the children in person.”
