Race is on to help kids have a merry Christmas
The time to quit procrastinating is here.
It’s December, already.
Though Christmas Day is still more than three weeks away, it’s time to get serious about the holiday activities and preparations — the special worship services and programs, the shopping, the wrapping, the cooking and baking, the family gatherings and partying.
And, hopefully, your list includes a donation to Christmas Happiness.
Vouchers will soon be going out to parents and guardians of those children who qualify for help this year — if there’s enough money in the fund to cover all of them. Your contribution will 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.
