Salvation Army Of Greater Chattanooga Launches Holiday Assistance Programs In The Tennessee Valley

Monday, October 22, 2018

With nine weeks until Christmas and many local families in need material assistance, The Salvation Army is launching its Christmas outreach programs. Monday is the start of Angel Tree Registration for local children and seniors.

"The Salvation Army is expecting long lines, as the need is great," officials said.  "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 our 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 every day on Oct.

22-26, and Oct. 29 – Nov. 2.
 
In Chattanooga, folks can register at 5001 Covington Street, off of Rossville Boulevard, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on the above dates.
 
In Cleveland, folks can register at The Salvation Army on Inman Street, 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," officials said.  "Volunteers may assist at Angel Tree tables in the mall and serve as bell ringers to raise money for our many ministries, which meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of local residents. Additionally, volunteers may fill stockings with everyday essentials for seniors or fill backpacks for local homeless. Changing a life is as easy as ringing a bell or stuffing a stocking or backpack."
 
Donations can be made online at www.csarmy.org, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or by mail to: 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37403 . For additional information, call 423-756-1023.
