QUAD CITIES (KWQC) - The Salvation Army is accepting applications for Christmas assistance, including toys for children up to age 15 and food boxes. Applications will be accepted through the end of November.

Individuals or families in need of help this season can make an appointment by calling the locations in Scott County (563) 324-4808 and Rock Island County (309) 764-2811.

The Salvation Army will also be delivering hot Thanksgiving meals and boxes to shelter and Rapid Rehousing clients this weekend in partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and area food banks.

The Salvation Army says more than 100 individuals are provided shelter each month and dozens are assisted to prevent homelessness.
