Applications will be available for the 19th Annual Angel Tree Project from Monday, October 27th through Monday, November 3rd.
Spokesperson Laura Stone said that the application turn in date has been set for one day only. "Applications can be picked up October 27th through November 3rd. You will continue to pick up your applications at the Department of Human Services, but the application must be returned in person on November 4th at the Smithville First Baptist Church Life Enrichment Center," she said.
"Completed applications will have to be returned to the First Baptist Church Life Enrichment Center Building in downtown Smithville (on the corner across from First Baptist) on Tuesday, November 4th from 9am to 7pm. Applications not returned to the Church LEC Building on this day WILL NOT be accepted. There are no exceptions to the requirements of the application process. It is very important that you understand we will only accept applications this one day only," said Stone.
"Applications can only be picked up at the Department of Human Services on October 27th through November 3rd and can only be returned to the Church LEC Building on November 4th. In addition to bringing the completed application, applicants must provide photo identification of the person applying and social security cards and birth certificates for ALL children listed on the application. We will only be keeping the application; all other documents will be returned to the applicant. If an applicant cannot appear in person, their application can be submitted by a family member as long as all of the required information is presented." Stone continued.
"Eligible children must live in DeKalb County and be no older than age 12 by December 25, 2014. The Department of Human Services will only be passing out the applications. Nothing will be returned to them and any questions should be directed to Laura Stone at 615-464-7135". DO NOT contact DHS or anyone at the LEC pickup location under any circumstances; you may jeopardize your application," she said.
Stone adds that "the Angel Tree has been such a tremendous success in the past and with economic times extremely tough for many in our area, we want this years Angel Tree to be no exception. The Angel Tree helps so many families who are struggling to make ends meet. It is sad to think about, but many of these children would not otherwise have a single present for Christmas. With the economy still struggling, we are expecting demand to be high."
