Register now for Salvation Army kids' gift program

 

November 6, 2020



The Carlton County Salvation Army Adopt-A-Child program is registering families needing help by providing gifts for their children this year. The Covid-19 pandemic has created greater need in our communities as a result of job layoffs and furloughs, and The Salvation Army’s Rescue Christmas campaign is designed to provide more assistance to struggling families.

Register in person at the Salvation Army, 316 Carlton Ave., Cloquet (enter through the front door), from 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday until Nov. 20.

Registrants should bring one of the following: your child’s Social Security card, birth certificate or medical insurance card. Call 218-879-1693 for more information.

The Rescue Christmas campaign is designed to raise awareness of the increased need for food, housing support, and emergency financial assistance. Nationwide, demand for Salvation Army services has increased 155 percent as a result of the pandemic.
