Sign Up For Salvation Army Christmas Distribution This Week

Sign up begins this week for those who would like to apply and receive winter coats and Christmas food and gifts through the Fond du Lac Salvation Army. Sign up is from 3 to 7 p.m. this Thursday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Salvation Army offices at 237 North Macy Street. Salvation Army Captain Steve Wilson says some things will be required for those applying for the assistance. You will need valid photo identification, Social Security cards or I-9 forms for everyone in the house. Proof of residency and household income for the past 30 days is also required. If you are signing up for Christmas, gift ideas would also be helpful. Wilson says although the Christmas distribution isn’t until December they need people to apply for that assistance now. That assistance will include toys for children and food for the family. Donations of gently used coats for both kids and adults will be collected through Saturday at 23 different locations in the community.
