Even before school starts some parents are already planning ahead for their children's Christmas gifts and family food baskets. Early Monday morning, August 16th a short line of families waited to receive an appointment for Salvation Army Christmas assistance. Sleepy children hurried in with their moms and dads as each family was quickly scheduled an appointment to apply for our annual holiday help at the Christmas Registration Center. If you, or someone you know needs a little assistance with making the Christmas season brighter this year, please remember to have an appointment scheduled in advance for the registration process. This can be done by dropping-in at the Center of Hope, 102 N. Denver in Tulsa from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily.
