Houlton Salvation Army now accepting assistance applications

HOULTON, Maine – The Salvation Army of Houlton is continuing its 134-year tradition of providing assistance to families throughout the year and at Christmas.

 Individuals that live in the greater Houlton area who are in need of assistance should come to the Houlton Salvation Army headquarters, located at 12 Court St. and bring an identification card for each member of the family (birth certificate or Medicare or Mainecare card), proof of residence and income and expenses to see if they may qualify.

Applications are available now and interviews will be done Oct. 10-14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Due to limited staff and resources, no applications will be accepted after these dates without evidence of an emergency.

 Supporters wishing to help those in need can call for an Angel Tree information packet.  Volunteer bell ringers are also needed starting Nov. 17 through Dec. 24. For more information, call The Salvation Army at 207-532-2322.
