The Salvation Army of Lee County’s Angel Tree JOY Program helps provide clothing and toys for Christmas to eligible children up to 12 years old (born after 12/25/2011).

Registration will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 12 at First Presbyterian Church, 203 Hawkins Ave. in Sanford.

To sign up, a valid picture ID and proof of current Lee County address (a utility bill from August, September or October; a copy of your lease, child’s school enrollment letter for 2022-23, or your child’s free/reduced lunch letter for the current year), proof of income (current Medicaid card for each child, free/reduced lunch paperwork, food stamp award letter, or paycheck stubs from the past two pay periods), an ID for each child showing date of birth, and official custody or guardianship papers if you are not the biological or adoptive parent are required.

Assistance cannot be given without proper documentation. Children will not be allowed at registration.
