Greensboro, NC - Sign-up for hopeful recipients in the Salvation Army's Christmas gift program begins Monday, October 18.
They will be serving children up to 12 years old. You can sign up at the Salvation Army offices at 821 South Aycock Street in Greensboro. You will need to provide proof of income and expenses.
Maj. Paul Egan says they will have to look closely at applications this year since they are anticipating a large need.
"We're gonna have to look very closely at each application that comes in to make sure that we're only helping those with the greatest need because there are a lot of people out right now with need," he said. "But the Salvation Army is very hopeful we'll be able to help everyone that presents us with a real need."
You can sign up until Friday, October 29, but Egan points out that the beginning and end of the period tend to be the busiest.
