The Salvation Army: Modesto, California
What is the Angel Tree program for Salvation Army? PDF Print E-mail

The program provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas. Children who are recipients of Angel Tree gifts are from families who have applied for Christmas assistance through the Social Services program of The Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Angel Tree locations this year are located at all Great Clips locations in Modesto, FedEx on Crows Landings, Central Valley Community Bank on Standiford, and all Planet Evolution locations in Modesto. Go by and pick up an Angel, go shopping and and return the gifts to the same Angel Tree location.

If you need assistance this Holiday season, please come by our Family Services office at 625 I Street in Modesto. Applications for Christmas Food and Toys are being taken M-F 1-4pm until Dec. 8, 2016.

 
Christmas Assistance PDF Print E-mail

 

The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless. Donations and financial assistance provide Christmas dinners, clothing, and toys for families in need, including families of prisoners.

Volunteers distribute gifts to shut-ins in hospitals and nursing homes, and shelters are open for sit-down dinners. The Salvation Army endeavors to bring spiritual light and love to those it serves at Christmas so that the real meaning of the season is not forgotten. Many families receive aid over a period of months after the Christmas season, as well as people struggling with difficult family, emotional, or employment problems.

Because we want to respond to the varying needs of the communities in which we serve, all of our holiday assistance programs are administered locally. If you require assistance, you will need to contact your local Corps Community Center by using the location search on this page. Please note: Most locations begin registration as early as October, so it's recommended you contact your local Salvation Army as soon as possible to inquire about registration dates.

Volunteers can register online to ring here or call 522-3209 and ask for Jen.

These are kids from families with parents who worry about them after school — some of them might even be your neighbors.
