ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Salvation Army knows there's a need for assistance this holiday season, but feel some people may be hesitant to ask for help.

They've extended the deadline to apply for the Toys for Tots program and encouraged families to apply for help before the deadline runs out.

 Captain Doug McClure says while they don't always have the funding needed to help with utility bills, they do get extra funds this time of year to offer holiday assistance.

"We just want to make sure we're reaching the right kind of people, the people who need assistance, not just people who are trying to take advantage of a situation but the people who really need the care and so there is some paperwork to it," said McClure.

If you think you may need help or haven't applied anywhere else, he encourages you to contact the Salvation Army.

The deadline to apply is Friday. The Salvation Army is taking applications daily from 9:00 until 2:00.

You need to have several pieces of identification including a state issued ID, birth certificates for all the children, and current, rent, food stamp, utility bills and proof of income.
