Help for families at Christmas

Families needing help to provide the makings of a holiday celebration can apply next week at the Salvation Army center in Grass Valley.

Applications will be taken from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Nov. 1 through 4, at the center at 10725 Alta St. between West Main and Ridge Road.

Many groups in western Nevada County are working together to provide assistance:

• Angels Among Us Adopt-a-Family Program is a cooperative effort of several groups to make sure that toys, food and clothing are provided to needy families. Roamin Angels Car Club will adopt 100 families from the list of those who apply.

• U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program also will supply toys and bicycles to children in need

• JC Penney has an online gift-giving program that will provide clothing.

• Volunteers with Interfaith Food Ministry and Nevada County Food Bank will be working to ensure everyone receives enough food.

• Salvation Army also works closely with Women of Worth, Ladies’ Relief Society and several churches and local service clubs that adopt families and ensure that needs are being met.

Those interested in donating can call (530) 274-3500 to learn more.
