Christmas Happiness fund rises in memory of family, friends
A number of people gave to the Christmas Happiness Fund in memory of friends, family and others they admired this week. The fund, which provides gifts for needy children, is a great way to remember someone while making a difference.
The Christmas Happiness Fund helps Rowan County families in need buy gifts for their children. Itís sponsored by the Salisbury Post, which collects contributions. The Rowan County Department of Social Services distributes the funds.
For qualified families, a Christmas Happiness voucher will be issued for $25 for each child in the family, up to a family maximum of $100.
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.
