Salvation Army seeks space for program

The Columbus Salvation Army is seeking about 2,000 square feet of office space to administer its annual Angel Tree program that provides gifts for children up to age 15 in struggling families.

Organizers hope to have a place by the end of October to utilize between Nov. 10 and the week of Dec. 19, said Nancy Johnson, the agency’s administrative assistant.

Until recently, the not-for-profit Christian ministry tentatively had a location for the work, but the office owner made other plans, Johnson said.

The Salvation Army began accepting applications for the Angel Tree program Monday. Application hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays through Oct. 13 at The Salvation Army headquarters, 2525 Illinois Ave.

Applicants must bring copies of all bills and expenses, including rent or mortgage, utilities, phone and groceries, as well as provide proof of annual income, she said.

Information and possibilities for office space: 812-372-7118.
