Salvation Army Taking Apps for Christmas Assistance
If you need help from the Salvation Army, they're accepting applications for Christmas assistance today through October 12. It's for individuals and families who live in Sangamon County.
You'll need a photo ID (a medical card, birth certificate, or school ID works for those who are 15 and under) and proof of address.
"At Christmas time, we provide toys, we provide food boxes, winter coats, gloves, hats, coats, anything like that," Paul Logan of the Salvation Army said.
Applications cannot be registered with any other agency for 2012 Christmas assistance.
The Salvation Army has served Sangamon County for the past 126 years. Last year, 850 local families benefited.
