Salvation Army Angel Tree registration

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - The Louisville Salvation Army will begin registering families for the 2011 Angel Tree on Monday, October 17. The program provides Christmas presents for needy children who may not otherwise get any presents.

This year, the Salvation Army Angel Tree has moved to 911 South Brook Street. There is only street parking, so leaders are asking families to come throughout the day. Early mornings are always very busy, and to come back at a later time if traffic is congested.

Registration will be held October 17 through October 29. Monday through Friday hours are 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; closed on Sundays.

To apply for assistance families need to bring the following information:

· Valid photo ID

· A utility bill received in the mail since July 2011

· Proof of income

· Proof of children's ages. Only children born after January 1, 1998 are eligible.

· Social security cards for all members of the household

 Another change for the Salvation Army this season, bell ringers for the red kettles will be 100% volunteer.

 For more information about either program, please call 671-4935 or click here.
