(Columbus, IN, September 26, 2012) The Columbus Salvation Army will begin taking applications for their Angel Tree beginning Monday October 1, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. Individuals may sign up for this Christmas assistance program at The Salvation Army located at 2525 Illinois Ave (corner of Illinois and Gladstone) from the 1st of October till the 15th of November from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m./1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Lt. Jodi said, “Christmas should be a time of anticipation and joy, especially for children. But for many of the parents in our community Christmas season sometimes serves as a sad reminder of the fact that they are struggling to meet just the basic needs of their families. The Salvation Army hopes that we can help make Christmas brighter for many children and needy families within our community.”
Applicants are asked to bring photo ID’s of all those living within the household (driver’s license, medical card, school ID, Birth Certificate) and proof of address. If there are any questions please call The Salvation Army at 812/372-7118.
