2017 Christmas Assistanace Registration begins in October

October 23 - 27, 2017

Each year, thousands of families in Cumberland and surrounding counties are unable to provide Christmas gifts for their children and senior parents or grandparents. These parents work hard and find ways to make ends meet, but Christmas gifts under the tree is out of their reach financially.

If you are one of those families, if you need assistance this year to help put a smile on your children's faces this Christmas morning, don't wait or delay! Mark your calendars to remind you to register for The Salvation Army's Christmas Assistance Program, also known as the Angel Tree Program.
