Christmas Happiness for Nov. 28

The Christmas Happiness campaign helps families in need buy gifts for their children. It’s sponsored by the Salisbury Post and the Rowan County Department of Social Services, which distributes the funds.
Families who qualify for Christmas Happiness will receive a $25 voucher per child in the home under the age of 18, or a maximum of $100 per family.
In many cases, that’s the only Christmas money those families will have.
Contributions can be brought to the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St., between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays or mailed to The Salisbury Post Christmas Happiness Fund, P.O. Box 4639 Salisbury, NC 28145-4639.
