Christmas Assistance

2022

Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of the Christ Child with family, friends, food and gift giving.

But Christmas can also be the worst time of the year if you find yourself alone or unable to afford the little extras that make the Christmas season so special.

Through the generous support of many individuals, businesses, and community groups The Salvation Army is able to provide Christmas assistance. Thank you for your trust in us to be the vehicle between you and those most in need.
