The Salvation Army will spend an extra day interviewing and reviewing applications for Christmas assistance.

The nonprofit will meet with applicants 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-3:30 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Worship Center, 1505 Fourth Ave. E, Olympia.

Applicants need to bring picture identification for all household members who are 18 years or older, social security cards for all household members, and proof of low income, such as a letter from DSHS, a grant letter or pay stubs for the past 30 days.

Christmas assistance is available only to residents of Olympia, Lacey or Tumwater, so proof of residence, such as a utility bill, DSHS letter or a statement from a case manager is required.

So far, the Salvation Army has signed up 482 families to receive Christmas help this year, but that’s still 318 families short of its goal of helping 800 families.

For more information, call 360-352-8596, ext. 100.
