The Salvation Army – Vernon campaign is $20,000 behind last year’s target.
There are just 11 days to go in the campaign.
“First and foremost, we want to thank our community for their tremendous support,” said Lt. Stefan Reid of The Salvation Army – Vernon. “The funds that are raised at Christmas not only help out individuals and families during the holiday season but it provides much-needed support all year round.”
People can donate in a couple of different ways.
They are able to drop off funds at any of the 11 kettle locations, they can drop them off at The Salvation Army – Vernon House of Hope at 3303-32nd Avenue, or online at www.vernonhouseofhope.com.
“We encourage those in our community to help us in any way possible,” said Reid. “We know that this time of the year can be challenging for many, however, it’s because of these generous donations that give people hope during the Christmas season.”
