The Christmas Season is rapidly approaching and many local families are in need of material assistance. To meet this need, The Salvation Army is beginning 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 Oct. 28–30, Nov. 4–7 and Nov. 12–14.

Cleveland folks can register at 437 Inman St. West, Cleveland TN 37311 by appointment only. Please call 423-308-3467. Volunteers are invited to join ranks and assist 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 many Salvation Army 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 people. Changing a life is as easy as ringing a bell, throwing a party, or stuffing a stocking or backpack!

In addition to giving at the kettles, donations may be made online at www.csarmy.org, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or by mail to: The Salvation Army, 437 Inman Street, Cleveland, TN 37311.
