More people asking for Christmas assistance

Another long line of people showed up at the Salvation Army Tuesday morning asking for Christmas help.

The Salvation Army took in over seven hundred applications Monday and expects as many today.  Families who are accepted will receive new clothes, toys from Toys for Tots, and food from Kroger.

The number of people asking for help is up considerably from last year, according to Maj. Keath Biggers of the Salvation Army.  But he says, "I have a lot of faith that the people of this community will respond as they have in the past, and step up with even greater need than last year."

The Salvation Army looks at families' income and expenses in deciding who receives assistance.  You can apply from ten to seven every day except Sundays from now through October 31st.
