Salvation Army thanks Logan County residents          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Thank you to the churches, clubs, schools, Adopt-A-Family sponsors, those who rang bells, packed baskets, interviewed families, and other individuals of Logan County who are all supporters of The Salvation Army. A total of 330 volunteers and their gift of 971 hours made The Salvation Army 2004 annual Christmas kettle campaign a success!

Through your gifts of time and money, The Salvation Army was able to assist 103 families over the holidays. Assistance with Thanksgiving food boxes, the Home for the Holidays eviction prevention program, the Adopt-A-Family program which provided food, miscellaneous gifts for families at Christmas and special gift certificates for developmentally handicapped adults was given.

In addition, during 2004 The Salvation Army provided approximately 600 individuals with various types of assistance, including, but not limited to, food pantry items, utility and housing costs, limited life-sustaining prescription costs, and numerous other forms of assistance.

All possible only because of the generosity of Logan County residents.

Thank you!

Capt. Dean A. Sanders
