EATON — The 2017 Preble County Christmas for Kids program registration will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at the new location of the Church of the Nazarene, located at 201 Lexington Drive, Eaton.
The new location was the former site of L&M Products.
Registration for help is a one day event, and will be held from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
Families wishing to receive toys for their children ages 0-17 years should bring with them three months’ proof of income, proof of custody and age of the children, and proof of current address and a picture ID. (Note: this is a change in the age range of teens — 17 year-olds are now eligible.)
Examples of proof of custody can include a medical insurance card, medical records, school report card, mail addressed to the child, legal custody document or any document that links the child to the household.
To be eligible, families must meet the income guidelines, have custody of the child, and live in Preble County. (Note: This includes families in the Twin Valley Community Local School District.)
Income guidelines are: family of two, $2,655 per month or $31,860 per year; three, $3,348/month or $40,180/year; four, $4,041/month or $48,500/year; five, $4,735/month or $56,820/year; six, $5,428/month or $65,140/year; seven, $6,121/month or $73,460/year; eight, $6,815/month or $81,780/year.
Preble County Christmas for Kids is made possible by the collaborative efforts of many community partners.
As always, anyone interested in donating new toys will be able to drop them off at Santa’s Cabin at Ft. St. Clair on Saturday, Dec. 2, during The Register-Herald’s annual Kids for Kids collection event, or drop off donations between 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, at The Register-Herald’s office, 532 N.
