Our $10,000 goal thermometer missed its peak ever so slightly rising to $9911.70 $10,000! (Shortly after posting this an angel asked if she could still donate the $88.30 to make the goal? Thank you, anonymous angel for uplifiting others! So very blessed!) That is a 55% increase over last year’s total! Thanks to the support of our amazing community, our wonderful volunteers and partners we can positively impact the lives of individuals and families in our community who turn to The Salvation Army for assistance when they need it most! We could not provide the programs and services that we do without your support! Thank you!
