Christmas Assistance Application 2020


This application is for residents of Kent County, Michigan. 

If you live in another location. Please contact your local Salvation Army to receive assistance in your area. If you live in western Michigan or northern Indiana, visit our divisional map to locate the site nearest you.

Due to Covid-19, distribution of Christmas assistance for 2020 currently will not be open shopping as in recent years. We will be handing out toys chosen by volunteers based on the child's age and interests. Please list suggestions that would help us! We CANNOT guarantee anyone a specific item and we will NOT allow toys to be exchanged.

Those receiving Christmas assistance from the Salvation Army will receive:

  • a gift card to help with the purchase of Christmas dinner;
  • one large and one small toy for each child ages 0 to 11;
  • a gift card to purchase gifts for each child ages 12-16.

Our plans could change again depending on State Executive orders. Distribution is currently planned to take place December 21-22. Once your application is submitted, you will receive confirmation and an appointment time and location for distribution. If additional screening is required, you will be contacted. 

If you have questions, please contact Kent County Social Services at (616) 459-9468.
