Captain Dana Cook with the Salvation Army said, "That (number of families) might be the same this year, it might be more it might be less, we do not know, but we are going to be ready for it, and we always know that the community will help us."

The Salvation Army is accepting applications Monday through Friday, 9:00 am until noon.

The agency will accept applications until the last Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
