Teen Angel program assisting families for Christmas

Posted: Updated:
Bowling Green, KY -

For some kids, Christmas is the one holiday they look forward to.

However, Christmas expenses aren't always manageable for families going through tough times.

That's why the Teen Angel program opens its arms and invites families to get the hope and assistance they need.

Today is the first registration day for the Teen Angel Christmas assistance program.

9 years ago, the Salvation Army was overwhelmed with the number of students in need for Christmas.

Sadly they were forced to do away with the program.

Instead of teenagers not being served, the vision council got together and created the Teen Angel program.

The program only covers those students ages 13 and up in school.

Registration is available for the next two weeks, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Warren County Public Library.

There is also a weekend opportunity this Saturday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

We spoke to Lynn Vincent, the Family Resource Youth Service Center Coordinator at Henry Moss Middle and Rockfield Elementary school.

Vincent says the sooner you register, the more help they can provide in advance to the Christmas holiday.

To register you must bring an I.D. for proof of identity.

Your child must be enrolled in Bowling Green or Warren County schools.

Also, bring your kid's sizes and proof of income whether you receive assistance or not.

Vincent says don't put this off and register your teen as soon as you can.
