Lehigh Valley, PA, 10/4/17 – The Salvation Army in the communities of Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and Pen Argyl will accept applications for the Christmas Assistance Program October 24-27, November 14-17 and December 4th 2017 beginning at 9am

The Salvation Army, Lehigh Valley serves more than 52,000 people across the area each year through our many programs and services. Our yearlong goal to improve the lives of less fortunate individuals and families continue as we bring hope to thousands of local families this holiday season.

Many families are struggling and the holidays make those challenges more apparent.  “We believe that every family deserves a meaningful holiday celebration. Our goal is to ensure that families struggling month to month, those out of work, or facing an emergency crisis receive both food and holiday gifts this season” says Major Colin DeVault, Lehigh Valley Area Coordinator for The Salvation Army.

Our partnership with 69News & Perkins Restaurant for Angel Tree, the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, and donations from community partners and friends help us provide holiday assistance to local families in need.

  1. Photo ID for all members in household and Social Security cards
  2. Proof of income (paystubs, public assistance receipts, Social Security check)
