Free Christmas help and holiday assistance Baldwin County Alabama.
The list of charities below provide holiday assistance to low income families. Apply for free Christmas gifts for kids; food boxes (including at Thanksgiving or Christmas); Toys for Tots; Angel Tree presents; and much more. Note that the demand for assistance in Baldwin County is very high and resources are limited, but the goal is to help as many struggling and/or working poor families as well.
In general, a family can only apply for assistance at one agency. They will ensure that say parents are not able to get their kids Christmas toys from all of the non-profits or churches below. So the goal is to not duplicate services or assistance programs. When applying for help, whether at Christmas or Thanksgiving, be sure to have proof of residency in Baldwin County, proof of income, SS numbers, and more.
The free Christmas toys will also be gender specific. In addition, the free food and holiday meals try to account for customs of the family as well as any religious needs. Everyone from the elderly to single moms may find assistance during the holidays from an organization below.
