Christmas Happiness helps fund families in need

Christmas Happiness contributions continued Wednesday, a day before families and friends gather for Thanksgiving Day activities.
The Christmas Happiness fund helps Rowan County families who are in need to buy gifts for their children. The contributions are collected at the Salisbury Post and listed in the paper each day. The Salvation Army of Rowan County distributes those funds. Families receive $30 vouchers to buy Christmas gifts for each child who qualifies.
The Salvation Army is holding additional application days next week beginning Monday at its office, 620 Bringle Ferry Road, Salisbury. The first round of applications were processed earlier this fall through the Christmas Bureau, which handles requests for several agencies.
This new Christmas Happiness application period is for families who have been burned out of their homes or face some other emergency situation. The Salvation Army will take applications 8:30 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Dec. 2-5; and 8:30-11:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.
Bring Christmas Happiness 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 donations to be listed. Please write legibly to ensure that donations can be listed accurately.
