KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

It's hard to believe but Christmas is just around the corner. That means the sign up for those families needing Christmas assistance is about to begin.

Applications will be collected this week for the annual Salvation Army Angel Tree Program and Christmas Assistance.

Starting Monday morning all three Salvation Army locations in our region will have sign ups.

Anyone qualifies, but you do have to bring paperwork. "They just need to have proper identification for everyone in the household and they need to be able to show their income and proof of expenses," said Major Anthony Baso with the Kingsport Salvation Army.
