Holiday Assistance Program begins

The Holiday Assistance Program assists military and civilian families, primarily the families of specialists and below, with actual needs during the Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays. Completed applications (available through chain of command and at ACS) signed by the commander or designated authority must reach Army Community Service, Bldg. 7790 on Hainerberg by 3:30 p.m. Nov. 14 for Thanksgiving and Dec. 6 for Christmas.

Oct. 26 and 27 are Make a Difference Days at the Commissary, where people can pick a grocery bag to purchase that includes items for a holiday meal for someone in need.

Organizations and volunteers are needed for the Angel Tree program and managing food baskets.
