The Salvation Army Christmas Assistance Program

Applications being accepted soon for the Amarillo and Canyon areas

(Serving Potter, Randall, Armstrong, Carson Oldham counties)

 

Last year the community teamed up with The Salvation Army to provide 2,015 gifts for our Angel Tree Program. Angel Tree is an emergency holiday assistance program where we provide annually to those in need ranging from infants to children age 18yrs. old. At The Salvation Army we believe everyone deserves a little Christmas.

 It is now that time of year again and Christmas is right around the corner. The Salvation Army Christmas Assistance Program (“Angel Tree”) is underway and will begin taking applications October 23rd-27th and November 6th-10th, Monday through Friday 8:30am-11:30am, and Monday & Thursday evenings 6:00pm-8:00pm at The Salvation Army Church located at 2101 S. Van Buren, Amarillo, TX.

If you know of any people needing assistance this Christmas holiday, please forward the information to them. For further information or for a list of the verification items needed in order to qualify for Angel Tree please contact our main office at (806)373-6631.
