Corriher Grange members donate to Christmas Happiness
There are a number of families in the western part of the county who have been members of Corriher Grange, community service organization, for more than than 50 years.
Every year at this time families collect donations during an annual Christmas party and submit them to the Christmas Happiness Fund.
Member David Allen said they’ve given just about since the inception of the Christmas Happiness Fund began and the only year he can recall they donated to a cause other than Christmas Happiness was last year when they donated money to the family of Marcus Kauffman, a firefighter who was killed during a home invasion a year ago.
This year when Allen filled out the form, he said, he did so in honor of Corriher Grange.
The group continues to give because it’s a good local charity with positive responses,” Allen said.
Donations to the Christmas Happiness Fund come from people in the community who earmark their gift in memory or honor of someone. Donations are brought to the Salisbury Post during business hours. The money is then given to the Salvation Army of Rowan County to distribute to eligible families.
Donations given for today were:
In honor of Rochelle Bost and Kay McCartney…Birthday Buddies by Dinah Carpenter $25
In honor of Corriher Grange 50 Year Members by Corriher Grange $100
Contributions to Christmas Happiness may be delivered to the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays or mailed to Salisbury Post Christmas Happiness Fund, P.O. Box 4639, Salisbury, N.C. 28145-4639.
Please make checks payable to Christmas Happiness Fund and indicate how you want your donation listed.
