Question: Where can I get assistance with presents this year?

Answer: Deadlines to register for assistance through several holiday gift programs have passed.

For future reference, these programs include USPS Operation Santa, Toys for Tots, The Salvation Army’s Walmart Angel Tree and more.

With Christmas now just days away, last-minute resources are limited to local outreaches and toy drives.
