Holiday Help

Do you know someone who may need assistance this holiday season?  As most local folks already know-- we help thousands in the Tulsa Metro with Christmas needs each year.  For the third year we are offering Christmas assistance registration BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Don't fret though, we have 4,000 appointments available!  

RIGHT NOW is the time to come by our headquarters at 924 S. Hudson and pick up an appointment letter. They are available Mon-Thurs from 9a.m.-3p.m.  Each letter will have a date and time for families to come and apply for assistance.  The letter also has information about what to bring and what not to bring. Assistance is available to low income families who have proof of income and expenses, as well as some other paperwork.

Every year I have people ask me, how do you get angels for the Angel Tree? This is the first step in that process. We hand out appointments in August, then we take appointments through October and finally we put all the trees out with the Angels in November.  This system provides food and gifts for local families who need it most.  

Don't be shy, if you know someone who might need help, please tell them that they can come and get an appointment. The Salvation Army wants every child in Tulsa to have a smile on their face this Christmas.

Merry Christmas!
