Christmas Happiness: filling needs isn't always easy

What do you want for Christmas?

Ask a young child that question and you will likely receive a request that’s east to fulfill.

Easily fulfilled, that is, if you have a steady job with an income that covers more than the bare necessities.

A doll, toy car, basketball or new sweater are all beyond the means of far too many people.

That’s where Christmas Happiness steps in to create miracles for low income children in Rowan County. What the fund wants this year for Christmas, as it does every year, is for no child to be forgotten. Your help does make a difference.

Bring contributions to the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays or mail them to The Salisbury Post Christmas Happiness Fund, P.O. Box 4639, Salisbury, NC 28145-4639. Make checks payable to the Christmas Happiness Fund and indicate how you wish your donation listed.
