"Anyone in need of assistance, if you're going through a financial struggle, or just got laid off and you don't think you'll have enough money for your family to have a Christmas, you can come in and apply," said Megan Cornwell, Salvation Army Director of Marketing. "We just have a few different documentation needs you need to fill out. Last year we assisted over 3,400 households with Christmas assistance so that's food and or toys depending on what the family says."
