It isn`t too early to start thinking about the holidays. That`s why the Salvation Army has begun accepting applications for Christmas give-aways. Residents interested need to stop by their local Salvation Army and present a piece of identification for themselves and each person living in the household. You need to show a proof of income and a proof of residence, like a utility bill or rent receipt. The Salvation Army will begin accepting applications on Monday, November 5th. You have until the 12th of December. For more information, call (417) 624-4528.
