Letter to the Editor 2-1

Dear Editor,
The Salvation Army Thanks You

January 29, 2013
 On behalf of The Salvation Army and those whom we serve, we would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to all your readers who helped make this another successful Christmas Season.
As always, we are grateful to everyone who donated their time to bell ring throughout the holiday season, as well as the businesses that supported our Red Kettle Campaign. These volunteers and all who helped by filling the red kettles and mailing in contributions have made a huge impact on our efforts.
 Because of the generosity throughout the community, our neighbors in need are receiving help not just at Christmas time, but throughout the year. Thank you for playing such an important role in the work of The Salvation Army where you live! We are grateful for the generosity of those who give their time and treasures so freely to help people throughout the community.
 If you are interested in donating or volunteering during the coming year, please call 1.800.336.4547 extension 368 for more information. You can also find out more information about The Salvation Army’s service in this and other communities at www.salvationarmy.us.
 May God Bless you!
                          Sincerely,
                         Randall Summit
                         Service Extension Director
                         The Salvation Army
