Families needing help to provide Christmas for their children should mark their calendars for Sat., Nov. 3, for the one-day registration for the Andalusia Community Christmas.

This year’s registration will take place at the following times at:

• Red Level School – 9 a.m. until noon.

In order to determine if the family qualifies for the program, individuals must bring the following documents at the time of registration:

• the picture ID of the parent registering their children, i.e. driver’s license, school ID, work photo ID, etc.

• Birth certificate with documentation of guardianship for each child  that is not one’s biological child. Note that only parents and guardians are allowed to register their children. No grandparents, aunts  or other individuals unless they are legal guardians.

• Proof of residence such as a current bill or rent receipt that shows one’s physical address. No post office addresses will be accepted.

• Proof of government assistance such as WIC, Medicaid, SSI, etc.

Additionally, community members wishing to help make the event possible can submit tax-deductible donations or adopt an “angel” in the coming weeks, which should be mailed to Andalusia Community Christmas Inc., P.O. Box 1525, Andalusia, AL 36420.
