Supporting Children in our Community

We are currently accepting applications for the Christmas Assistance Program.

Due to COVID, In-person applications to participate in this annual program are being handled differently this year.

You will need to be prepared to provide the following information for eligibility:

  • ID
  • Social Security cards for all family members
  • Birth Certificates for all family members
  • Shoe, shirt, and pant sizes for children
  • Summary of household expenses
  • One special gift request (excluding electronics)

Tips for applying:  The Christmas program is for all children 17 and under.  If your child is 18 and still in High School, you may apply for assistance for them and must supply proof that they are still in High School.   If you have applied at Salvation Army, you MAY NOT apply for assistance at The Religious Coalition.

If you have any questions you can call and leave a message at 301-631-2670 Ext. 125. Be sure to provide a good working phone number as we will need to call you to complete your application.

Applications have closed.

If you are in need of help, please contact the Salvation Army. They will start accepting applications on December 1st.

Please continue to follow us on social media for updates.
