Donations helped bring happiness to children

All season, the community has reached into their wallets and given unselfishly to the Christmas Happiness Fund, which has gone on to help more than 1,500 children receive presents for Christmas.
Although the program has come to a close and the gift cards have been given to families this year, the community continues to give. Christmas Happiness contributions coming in now will go to start the program next year.
Christmas Happiness contributions are collected at the Salisbury Post. The donations are then listed in the paper each day. The Salvation Army of Rowan County distributes those contributions to area families in need.
Recent contributions are:
In memory of Harry and Helen Fisher, Clarence and Lela Hartley $100
In memory of Carol Snow (Grammy), LaVerne and Bill Webb (Meemaw and Poppy), Lola and Howard Grice (meemaw and poppy), and Gilbert and Hobson (Daddy Hop) by Caroline and Caylee Snow $60
In memory of all members and friends that have passed by Crown In Glory Lutheran Church $100
