Apply now for holiday assistance from The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army is now accepting applications for its Angel Tree program.

Families in need of assistance can fill out applications today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Towers Center of Hope located at 140 North Davis Street.

The Angel Tree program provides Christmas presents to children, ages 0-12, whose families may not be able to afford them.


Individuals, businesses, and church groups “adopt” the children by picking up Angel Tree tags from trees at the Avenues Mall and Ashley Home stores.

They then purchase gifts to specifically match the age, needs, and wishes of each child.
