Helping Provide a Joyful Christmas for our Neighbors in Need

We understand that making ends meet can be challenging some years. We also understand that children don’t understand the financial burdens that adults sometimes face – and we don’t want them to! We’d like to give you peace of mind by helping provide a Christmas of joy and hope for your family.

If you live in Fairfield County (Ohio) and could use some support this holiday season, please apply for assistance by November 15 through our Christmas Cheer program. NOTE: For the 2020 season, applications must be submitted in-person during an appointment - please call 740-687-1921 to schedule an appointment.

Here’s how the program works:

  • Eligibility: You must reside in Fairfield County, Ohio. No financial documentation is necessary, as we strive to withhold our mission of “Supporting those in need in His name without discrimination.”
  • Application: You must fill out and submit the application by November 15 each year.
  • Selection: You will be notified via mail at the address you provided to let you know if you have been selected to participate in the Christmas Cheer program.
  • Next Steps: Your next steps will depend on which program you were selected for (Adopt-a-Family, Angel Tree or Holiday Gift Basket); step-by-step directions will be included in your selection letter.
  • Coordination: As the holiday gets closer, you will be contacted regarding action necessary to coordinate the pick-up of your items.

If you are in need of assistance this holiday season, please don’t hesitate to reach out! The Salvation Army of Fairfield County strives to help all Fairfield County residents in need provide a joyful Christmas to their families.

We would love to hear your personal story of how the Christmas Cheer program has impacted your family! If you’d like to share your story, please reach out to Captain Bryan DeMichael at bryan.demichael@use.salvationarmy.org.
