FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- The Salvation Army staff doesn't ask questions when it comes to lending a hand for the Christmas holiday.
"We will have volunteers and staff available to help folks secure Christmas help, toys, and those kinds of things,” said Captain Kenyon Sivels, Salvation Army Corps Office Administrator of the Allen County Community Center location.
The Salvation Army's annual Christmas Assistance program will help Allen County families in need for the holiday as part of their national 'Rescue Christmas' campaign.
The staff say they're expecting a large crowd this year due to COVID-19 causing financial deficit for many families.
“I would guess that we’re going to have at least 5,000 people. I have no idea, but I imagine that this will be the busiest Christmas that I’ve ever seen,” said Salvation Army Social Services Director Timothy Smith.
The Salvation Army welcomes families to sign up for the program from Oct. 12-16 from 9am to noon and 1-4 pm at the Salvation Army Corps Community Center in Fort Wayne.
