MARTIN COUNTY -- This Christmas season, The Salvation Army of Martin County will help those in need by providing assistance to local families to help them make this the happiest time of the year. Gifts, toys, food and clothing will be distributed based upon need.

Applications for Christmas assistance will be taken at The Salvation Army Family Store beginning Wednesday, Oct.2 through Friday, Oct. 4. The hours are as follows:

Wednesday, October 2nd -- 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
