Community Christmas registration tomorrow

Community Christmas sign-ups for those who have not completed the required three credit classes or those families without children will take place at Emmanuel Baptist Church tomorrow. The registration will run from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the church in Greenwood Heights.

Those looking to sign up must meet income guidelines and be a resident of Crittenden County. You should bring proof of income for all adults living in the household and the Social Security number for the head of household.

Call the Crittenden County Extension Service at (270) 965-5236 for further information about the sign-up. Call Pennyrile Allied Community Services at (270) 965-4763 if you have questions about income guidelines. Emmanuel Baptist Church is simply a registration location and cannot answer Community Christmas questions.

Registration for those who have completed the class requirements was held previously.

Angel Trees are scheduled to be placed at participating businesses Nov. 16. Those businesses will be announced at a later time. Distribution for toys will be held beginning at 9 a.m. Dec. 17 at the Carson G. Davidson National Guard Armory in Marion. Food distribution will also be held on that date at Marion Baptist Church.

This is the 41st year for Community Christmas in Crittenden County, which is coordinated by the Inter-Agency Council.
