The Salvation Army has begun taking applications for its 2017 Back-to-School Assistance Program.  Families seeking help with school supplies and clothing for the upcoming school year can apply at The Salvation Army’s main office located at 1707 West Chestnut Expressway.

Sign-up continues through July 28, weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Applications will also be taken today (7/17) and July 24 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Families should take a photo ID and social security cards for everyone in the household and a current piece of mail.

The Salvation Army needs donations and volunteers to help with the back-to-school program. New or gently used clothing and school supplies such as backpacks, notebooks, binders, crayons and folders can be dropped off anytime at The Salvation Army. 

The Salvation Army expects to help more than 1,100 children this year.
