The deadline for charities to apply to The Daily News Christmas Cheer Fund is approaching.
Area registered charities that would like to receive part of the donations made to the Christmas Cheer Fund have until midnight on Sept. 30 to apply.
Last season, five local charities shared in $101,261.30.
If you are involved with a registered area charity and would like to be considered, click on the Christmas Cheer Fund logo — it’s right there on the left-hand side — and read the instructions. They are neither long-winded nor difficult.
The selected charities will be responsible for the issuing of receipts to donors.
After Sept. 30, the fund’s selection committee will choose the successful applicants with a decision to be made prior to mid-November.
