When thinking of Christmas, many think of enjoying a plentiful dinner and opening presents, according to a press release. Some families are not able to have such an experience due to financial difficulties.

The Salvation Army will accept applications for assistance to help those in need from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at 302 Court St. in Albert Lea.

Applicants are asked to bring IDs, proof of residence and proof of income. Once registered, applicants will be given a time to pick up their items on Dec. 21.
