Different states have different Christmas assistance programs but some organizations are in
every state with similar Christmas assistance programs. The Salvation Army is one of those organizations that has
many assistance programs to help people all year round, not just at Christmas time. You should be able to find a

assistance programs they have. Look for Christmas assistance programs.
You can usually get a list of local organizations with Christmas programs by calling United Way
or 2-1-1. They are there to help you 24-7. They do get lots of calls about Christmas assistance programs so be sure
to have a pen and paper ready to jot down what organizations you will need to contact.

Other Christmas Assistance Programs
We name a few organizations here that have popular Christmas assistance programs but there are
so many others that have programs to help families in need around Christmas time. Call United Way to get a list of
organizations that can help and call them all. Some Christmas assistance programs require you to not have received
help from other programs or organizations but there are many that allow you to apply to multiple places for help
because they know that you need help and there is a chance they might not be able to help you. It's a good
precaution to ask many organizations for help and information on their Christmas assistance programs because one
might fall through and you will need to go to the next organization and program for help.
