Christmas Help for Low Income Families

This year (2009), charitbable agencies expect to have an increase in the number of families seeking assistance for the coming holidays over the amount they serviced in 2008. There are national and local agencies offering Christmas help for low income families, but it is important that you contact them as soon as you can if you are a low income family in need of Christmas help. If you are in need of free toys this Christmas for your children and need help in feeding your family a holiday meal, please contact your local branch of each of the following agencies. They may be able to give your family holiday assistance. It will help to have your children’s first names, ages, sizes, and wish list written down before you contact them.

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army provides a large social services program to help needy people of all ages. Donations provide free Christmas toys, dinners, and clothing for families in need. For Thanksgiving and Christmas help, you need to contact your local Salvation Army for details on how to register for holiday food baskets and Christmas toys ASAP!  The time is now to make sure your family is on their reservation list.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots is a U.S. Marine Corps charity that collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December annually for Christmas. These free Christmas toys are distributed to children of low income families around the United States. Marine Toys for Tots makes it simple for you to receive free toys for your children, or for someone else. Search for the donation site in your state , follow their directions, and contact your local Coordinator.

United Way

United Way is accepting applications for free holiday food and toy assistance. To apply, families may need to present a picture identification card, Social Security cards for all family members, current proof of household income, proof of address (utility bill), and birth certificates or proof of custody for children ages 12 and under. Find your local United Way. The United Way can also direct you to agencies that can help you pay utility bills. Be sure to register for the Angel Tree program for your children to receive new Christmas gifts from local families.

Local Houses of Worship

This year I am including myself in need of your Christmas outreach help for my twin daughters ages 13 yrs. old. I live on a very low fixed income and without your help I don't know what I will do. Thank you for your time and generosity in advance. Sincerely, Robbie Wolfe

Thank u! Since it's so late in the holiday I've already been told the fire hall police and churches can't help. It just sucks cuz I wasn't planing on the person who maded the money in our house to abuse me and my 13 year old son 6 days before Christmas and leave us with nothing it sucks I just wish there was a miracle somewhere to help me.
