Santa’s Helper update

We are getting a little closer to reaching our goal, with $41,271 now raised. People seeking assistance from The Salvation Army will receive it through the efforts of scores of volunteers who are working extremely hard to get the very basics to many needy families. We will continue to take donations through the end of the month, so if you haven’t already given, but would like to, please send your donation to the address listed at the bottom of this article.
