With the holidays approaching fast, it’s good to know that there are organizations to assist metro families in need.

The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is accepting applications for Christmas assistance from residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties at all metro Detroit Salvation Army Corps Community Centers.

Applications must be filed by appointment at a corps community center according to the recipient’s zip code. To schedule an application appointment, please contact the nearest Salvation Army Corps Community Center. For help finding the nearest center, visit or call (248) 443-5500.

Applicants must provide proof of all members living in the household. Adults must provide a form of identification – which can include a driver’s license or state ID – and proof that they live in the zip code served by the corps at which they are applying (such as a recent utility bill or rent lease). Proof of names and ages for all children is required via report card or other documentation such as a birth certificate.

Christmas assistance for families up to six will include a box of non-perishable food to prepare a holiday meal and a grocery store gift card to purchase fresh foods. Larger families will receive more. Families with children up to age 14 may also apply to receive toys from The Salvation Army Corps Community Centers’ toy shops. Senior citizens will receive grocery store gift cards.
