Christmas Assistance


Date: 09:00 AM, 6 November 2012 to 08:00 PM, 22 December 2012
Category: Default


Help make Christmas a happy one for a family in need this year!Each year, families turn to The Salvation Army for help during the holidays, whether it's needing food for a Christmas dinner or wanting to see their children's eyes light up at having presents under the tree.  The Salvation Army is here and ready to help.

This year, there are 3 Salvation Army locations offering assistance: Gresham Center for Worship & Service, Moore Street Community & Worship Center in North Portland (combined with the Portland Tabernacle in NE Portland), and Tualatin Valley Citadel in Hillsboro.

In order to receive assistance, families must sign up at one of the locations. Assistance is first come-first served at all locations.  Families are asked to bring a Photo ID for all adults in the household, proof of address (in the form of a utility bill or rental agreement) and one of the following for the children: birth certificate, proof of school registration, school report card, or social security card.   Families must also reside in the service area for The Corps. 

Children ages 0 - 12 will receive toys, and families will receive a food box.  Parents are asked to come without children.  On the day of intake (sign ups), the families will then be given a date, time and location to pick up their food and toys for the holidays.
