FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – This year, WMBF News is a proud sponsor of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, and with Hurricane Matthew disrupting school schedules across the state, we wanted to make sure families know how to apply to receive gifts this holiday season.

The Salvation Army will be taking applications for the Angel Tree Program, which matches families in need with generous donors so children can receive toys and other gifts for the holidays.

All eligible applications must have the following for all persons living in their household, according to The Salvation Army:

  • Valid driver’s license or picture I.D.
  • Second form of identification, including a birth certificate, green card, Medicaid card, or social security card print-out.
  • Proof of income (check stubs)
  • Proof of expenses (old bills)

Applications for Marion, Marlboro, Dillon, Darlington, Chesterfield, and Florence counties will be taken at The Salvation Army in Florence, which is located at 2210 Hoffmeyer Rd. in Florence.

Applicants can apply from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. from October 17 to 20.

In Horry County, residents may apply Monday, October 17 through Friday, October 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Salvation Army location at 1413 2nd Avenue in Conway.

Soon, WMBF News will host a “Virtual” Angel Tree, where those seeking to help a family in need can register and select an “Angel” to purchase holiday gifts for.
