Pinal County free Christmas programs.
There are several organizations in Pinal County that lower income families can turn to for free Christmas toys and food boxes. Charities help less fortunate children as well as senior citizens enjoy the holidays by offering gifts, food, meals, and more.
The programs are run by volunteer organizations, such as the Salvation Army and also some are administered by local churches. They are not only trying to provide children with toys (such as games, dolls, books, and more) but the Pinal Agencies also want to ensure families have a free holiday meal, whether at Thanksgiving or Christmas. The assistance will help enrich the lives of residents living in or near poverty levels.
Applications for Christmas gifts or meals are accepted locally. The process also commences early, and bring proof of income, residency, and other supporting documentation.
