You know how to be "an angel" for the Salvation Army, but do you know how to get your little angels' names on the tree? 

We often hear of toy drives and donation campaigns but never really hear how to be recipients of others' generosity. Well, today, that changes.  The Salvation Army has announced its window for applications.

Did you notice anything?

They're planning in OCTOBER for DECEMBER! Of course, there are some instances where an unforeseen event affects one's ability to follow through with plans for the holidays, but there are other times where no plans were made and assistance is sought when it's too late.

Don't let pride or laziness be your downfall, especially when assistance is being extended early. You have the information. Use it, and share it with others.
