The Holiday Assistance Program assists military and civilian families during the holiday season. This includes food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas -- and gifts for children through the Angel Tree Program.
Leaders play a crucial role in assessing eligible families and nominating those with an actual need -- those willing to participate and available to take receipt of items during times allotted.
The Holiday Assistance Program will begin Oct. 28 (Make A Difference Day) and run through December. Deadline to submit initial applications for Thanksgiving is Nov. 9. The deadline to submit for holiday food baskets and Angel Tree gifts is Dec. 7. Families enrolled by Nov. 16 will automatically be included in the Angel Tree gift distribution, unless not wanting to participate or due to a PCS or ETS during that time.
Thanksgiving food basket pick-up will be Nov. 16-22 at Army Community Service (Building 7790 in Hainerberg). Christmas food baskets and Angel Tree gift pick-up will be Dec. 15-22 at ACS.
Applications are available through your Chain of Command or at Army Community Service. To download the application form, CLICK HERE.
