The Neighborhood Christian Center will be accepting applications and screening eligible households for heaters or blankets at 785 Jackson Ave. on Tuesday, December 20 from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

To apply applicants will need the following credentials on hand: Tennessee State ID or Drivers License to verify age and address.

If you have a physical disability but do not meet the age requirement, you must bring the proper certification information.
