Toys for kids aged 0-12 and food for all households

The holidays can bring added financial and emotional stress for families in need. That's why The Salvation Army has a variety of services to help families and individuals experience the joys of the season.

The Salvation Army helps struggling families keep food on their table. Hungry people are also welcome to take advantage of the food assistance provided through The Salvation Army's many feeding programs and shelters. In some areas, prepared holiday meals are delivered to those in need or shut-in.

Christmas is a magical time for children and adults alike, and part of that magic and joy is watching a child's face light up as he or she opens a present Christmas morning. For many parents, it can be a struggle to afford Christmas gifts. Families receive toys and other essentials for Christmas, making the holiday extra special that year.

Applications will be accepted during the following dates and times in November and December at The Salvation Army Family Services Office located at 9492 W Emerald St, Boise, Idaho 83704.
