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 our donors, the Angel Tree provides much needed clothing, toys and other crucial items to qualified participants.
Registration will take place October 28-30, November 4-7 and November 12-14 for the Greater Chattanooga and Cleveland areas. In Chattanooga, folks can register at 5001 Covington Street off of Rossville Boulevard, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on above dates. In Cleveland folks can register at 437 Inman Street West, Cleveland, by appointment only by calling 308-3467. For more information, including documentation required for registration, families in need should call 756-1023.
Volunteers are invited to assist the staff with the Angel Tree program as well as 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.
In addition to giving at the kettles, donations may be made by calling 800/SAL-ARMY or by mail to: The Salvation Army, 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403. For additional information please call 756-1023.
