Salvation Army Accepting Christmas Assistance Applications

Salvation Army accepting applications for Christmas assistance

The Salvation Army of Augusta is applications for its annual Christmas assistance program.

The program helps provide gifts for children ages 12 and under who are in need during the season of giving.

You’ll need to up at the First Stop Center, 1765 Broad Street, September 28 – October 2nd from 9am – 11:30am  and 1:00pm -3:30pm. Assistance will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Major Shirley Suarez is the Director of Social Services at the Augusta Area Command.

“Christmastime is a time for the children and for gifts for the children and so many times people make it week to week, but when it comes to Christmas they have nothing for the children.”

Applicants must bring all required documents to apply:
*Photo ID for all adults in household
*Birth Certificates for all children in household
*Social Security cards for all adults and children
*Proof of income, including SNAP
*Proof of current address
*Court custody papers for children who are not your birth children

Please bring clothing, coat and shoe sizes of the children and limit any gift requests to $40 per item. Do not bring children with you when you apply for assistance.

If you have applied at another agency, or received Christmas help here every year for the past five years you are not eligible for assistance at The Salvation Army.

If you have any questions, call the Salvation Army First Stop Family Service Center at 706-922-8330.
