The Quincy Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is sponsoring its 55th annual "Clothes4Kids" program, formally known as "Dress An Angel", on Friday, April 12. This program provides a new Easter/spring outfit and a Bible for over 300 children ages 12 and under in the Quincy area.

Those wishing to apply for assistance from the program may turn in an application either today or tomorrow from 2 to 4 p.m. at The Salvation Army Family Service Office at 501 Broadway in Quincy.

To apply, proof of residency and guardianship is needed, including photo identification. Parents must bring their child/children on the day of distribution on Friday, April 12, from 4 to 8 p.m. at The Kroc Center. Those interested in participating in this year’s Clothes4Kids program are encouraged to contact The Salvation Army Family Services office at 217-222-2087.

Each year, area churches, community groups, organizations, and individuals donate items and financial support for this program. Because need continues to increase, The Salvation Army requests community support and donations of both new clothing and financial gifts for our program this year.

The public can assist the Women’s Auxiliary by donating new purchased clothing (children’s sizes - infant to 16/18) or with a financial donation for the purchase of new clothing, Bibles and personal care items. Donations would be appreciated by April 5.

Clothing and donations of personal care items may be dropped off at the Kroc Center at 405 Vermont. Checks should be made out to The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary and delivered to the Kroc Center or P.O. Box 75, Quincy, IL 62306-0075.

 For more information about Clothes4Kids, please contact Major Cheryl Miller at 217-231-5663.
