Donors step up to give Rowan families a merry Christmas

All the vouchers were ready for distribution today to the last of the applicants at the Department of Social Services.

Christmas may still be three days away, but the Christmas Happiness fund’s miracles are complete for the 55th year. The generosity of the Post’s readers and Christmas Happiness supporters came through once again.

Late donations received through noon today will be listed in Saturday’s paper.

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.
