The Salvation Army staff begin signing children up for this program in June. Please call (920) 593-2379 to schedule an appointment. Families must be Brown County residents, low-income and regularly receive services from The Salvation Army.

Parents sign up and receive their children’s school supplies the same day. Availability of supplies depends on the donations received from the community, local businesses, and churches. Families must be Brown County residents and low income.

Food Baskets - Seniors and individuals without children are eligible for food baskets for Christmas. The food baskets usually contain meat, pasta or potatoes, bread/rolls, canned goods, and milk to make a holiday meal. Information on when to sign up and what documents to bring to the sign up is available beginning is September by calling (920) 497-7053 and requesting the holiday assistance information line.

Adopt A Family - A diverse collection of local corporations and Green Bay area families choose to anonymously “adopt” families in need during the holidays. The Salvation Army collaborates with over 10 agencies to identify families who would benefit from the Adopt-A-Family Program. The Salvation Army matches the adopter and the adoptee and distributes the complete “Christmas Package” before Christmas.

Silver Bells - Seniors and disabled adults who are alone at Christmas or may not receive a gift at Christmas time have their names and gift suggestions put on a tree at Bay Park Square. Donors can then pick a name and purchase gifts for those individuals. The gifts are then wrapped and distributed by the agency who submitted their name in time for Christmas.

Senior Community Christmas Meal - This is a free meal for seniors 50 and older which is sponsored by Schreiber Foods. The Christmas dinner is held in the gymnasium at The Salvation Army at 626 Union Ct. the first Saturday of December. Schreiber Foods provides volunteers to help serve a catered meal to our older adults of Brown County. Tickets are made available sometime in November. Entertainment follows the dinner.

Caring Community Ministries - Officers and volunteers visit several nursing homes in Brown County sharing the message of our Savior Jesus Christ’s birth at Christmas and distribute gifts to the residents. At Easter they visit and share the good news of our Savior’s Resurrection.

All of these Seasonal Assistance programs exist due to the generosity of the Brown County community. It is through donations from individuals, churches, businesses and foundations that we are able to offer this assistance to individuals and families in need. The Salvation Army is deeply thankful for the many partners who help us make these programs possible and to the many volunteers who assist us in the registration and distributions for these programs.
