Christmas hamper registration Monday, December 6


    This Monday, the Salvation Army community services is hoping to register those in need of a Christmas hamper this holiday season.

    This Monday, December 6 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Salvation Army will be making appointments for those needing to apply for Christmas assistance.
    “We hope to get as many people as possible registered by Monday,” said Lt. Rachel Sheils, stressing that making an appointment is important.
    To apply, adults of the household must present photo identification as well as proof of residency. This could be a drivers’ licence, a utility bill or a lease agreement. They also need identification of the children living in the household. There is requirement for proof of income such as pay stubs, and proof of expenses. This could be rent and utility bills.
    Because every situation is different, they understand those applying might be missing some of this information. This should not prevent those in need from coming forward.
    “We will listen to your story and determine what we can do for you when you visit us.”
    For children in the household, it is helpful to bring a list of gift ideas.
    The Salvation Army asks residents if they know of someone in the community in need of assistance, who is reluctant to come forward, to let them know.
    Registration is at the Salvation Army Church at 242 1st Street West. Call 403-823-2215 to make an appointment.
    Those not able to come on this day are still welcome to come at regular food bank hours.
