~~ 2018 Christmas Assistance Guidelines ~~


Only one application will be accepted for each household. The Head of Household is to apply and may only request help for people who permanently reside in the home. If unrelated individuals live in one residence and share expenses they will be documented as one family (No one under 18 years of age may be an applicant).

The Christmas Assistance consists of food for all in the household, and toys for children ages 12 and under. Please note that this is an application process. It is your responsibility to demonstrate your need for this assistance. Please be familiar with your income and expenses.

You must reside in the following school districts in order to receive assistance from our location: Lewisburg, Mifflinburg, Milton, and Warrior Run.

Applications will be completed in an interview with one of our social services staff members or volunteers.
