Salvation Army appreciates help

Because of the generosity of our community, The Salvation Army was able to make this Christmas season more joyful for some of our less fortunate neighbors.

We appreciate each person's contribution, whether time, talent or resources.

In particular, we salute:

The dedicated members of The Salvation Army Advisory Board.

The men and women of area service clubs and civic organizations who served at our Christmas kettles and the organizations they represent.

Volunteers who took applications, helped with the angel tree, drove the bus, stood at a kettle, picked up toys, worked at the distribution center and visited shut-ins.

The Huntington Fire Department, which provided manpower, sometimes at a moment's notice, to do what needed doing to keep us on schedule and for all the help you provided on distribution day.

The thousands of contributors (individuals and numerous local businesses) who adopted angels, hosted toy drives, allowed the familiar red kettle at your front doors and provided monetary resources so that many who might otherwise have been forgotten could experience the joy of Christmas.

With your support, we will continue Doing the Most Good for those in need throughout the year.

God bless you!

Major Matt and Cathy Riley

Commanding Officers
