Amy Crane from Southern Hills Church appeared on WSLM’s COFFEE CLUB this morning to get the word out about CAP – Christmas Assistance Program, which begins accepting applications today at 1p.
Crane appeared on WSLM’s COFFEE CLUB program this morning and said the program “helps so many kids.”
“One thing some people don’t realize is, they think we just get the kids a gift, but we do an outfit, socks, underwear, a coat and shoes, plus toys. It’s really nice to see these kids get new clothes that are greatly needed. But we do have a cut off date – November 14 — no applications can be accepted after that.”

CAP acts as an umbrella organization, distributing names to Shop With A Cop, the Salvation Army Angel Tree and to groups and individuals through local banks.

Application Dates:

Friday, October 17, 2014 1p.m. – 5p.m.
