It seems too early to think about the holiday season but not when it comes to planning to serve area families in need so that children can have a wonderful Christmas. According to Major Sharon Harford at the Oneonta Salvation Army, they will be accepting applications for Toys For Tots from October 1 through November 2.  The Salvation Army Angel Tree program and the Toys For Tots program have now been merged into one.

To apply, go to the Oneonta Salvation Army located at 25 River Street and fill out an application.  This can be done Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and then from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Applicants must meet certain guidelines.  Please bring proof of residency, proof of income and proof of household composition.  Applications will be accepted from Otsego and Delaware County residents.
