Salvation Army launches holiday assistance programs

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRVCB) -- The Christmas season is rapidly approaching and many local families are in need of material assistance.  To meet this need, The Salvation Army has begun its Christmas outreach programs.

Families at or below the poverty line with children 12 years of age or younger and seniors 60 years of age and older are invited to register for the Angel Tree program.  Through the generosity of donors, the Angel Tree provides much needed clothing, toys and other crucial items to qualified participants.  Registration will take place October 23–25, October 29–November 2, and November 5–7 for the Greater Chattanooga and Cleveland areas.  

In Chattanooga folks can register at 5001 Covington Street off of Rossville Boulevard, 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. (on Thursdays the hours are Noon – 7:00 p.m.)

In Cleveland folks can register at Mt. Olive East Church of God located at 956 6th St. N.E., by appointment only by calling (423) 308-3467.  

For more information including documentation required for registration, families in need should call (423) 756-1023 or visit www.csarmy.org.

Volunteers are invited to join our ranks and assist our staff with the Angel Tree program as well as our other seasonal efforts.  Volunteers may serve as bell ringers in order to raise money for our many ministries which meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of local residents. 

Additionally, volunteers may host Christmas parties for low income seniors or fill stockings with everyday essentials for seniors or fill backpacks for local homeless.  Changing a life is as easy as ringing a bell, throwing a party, or stuffing a stocking!
