People who want to receive holiday food and toys from the Salvation Army can sign up Nov. 2-4 and Nov. 30-Dec. 2 in Medford.

Sign-ups will be from 9 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 4 p.m. on those days at The Salvation Army Church, 304 Beatty St. Applicants should bring identification for family members, income verification and proof of residence.

Last year, The Salvation Army provided holiday food and toys to 964 families, and the organization expects that number to be significantly higher this year. Families requesting assistance will receive traditional food items for a Thanksgiving dinner and a Christmas dinner. In addition, children 12 and younger will receive toys.

Distribution is scheduled to be held Nov. 22 and 23 for Thanksgiving and Dec. 21 and 22 for Christmas. As in past years, Lithia Motors is donating the use of its old Dodge building at 315 Fifth St. to be the site for holiday food and toy distribution.
