This year, The Salvation Army is going to help 500 families in the Coachella Valley and Yucca Valley who need Christmas assistance. They will provide families with food, toys and other gifts.
Families can apply for Christmas assistance here: https://saangeltree.org/
Once the 500 families are approved, they'll receive a date and time to come pick up their items on either December 16 or 17.
The Salvation Army Cathedral City Corps is located at 30400 Landau Bl. Cathedral City, CA 92234
Also, once the families have been chosen, The Salvation Army will release information for people looking to sponsor angel families and help buy gifts for the families in need. All of this will now be done online this year.
The Salvation Army expects to see a greater need for services due to the pandemic and higher unemployment rates.
If your family is in need of assistance this holiday season fill out an angel tree application here: https://saangeltree.org/
