Letter: Salvation Army can use your help more than ever
As Christmas approaches, the Salvation Army is busy with its holiday wish list, that no family be without food or shelter.
The Salvation Army Goodhue County Service Unit has served 949 residents and 95 non-residents from Jan. 1 to Nov. 9, 2013.
The Salvation Army Service Unit of Goodhue County offers clothing, furniture, school supplies, groceries, gasoline, rent, prescriptions, help with utility bills, lodging for the homeless and families who are stranded in Goodhue County. We visit nursing homes throughout the county at Christmas and Easter.
This holiday season, when you hear the ringing of a Salvation Army bell and see the Red Kettle, please offer your support. We need your help even more this year as funding cuts take effect and even more people come to us for emergency needs.
We would like to encourage additional youth participation in our Kettle Campaign. If you are interested in bellringing, please call Don Felmlee at 651-388-2698.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Nadine Holbert is the Salvation Army county service unit chairperson.
