Christmas Happiness donations continue to pour in
SALISBURY — Donations continue to pour in for the Christmas Happiness Fund as the year comes to a close and a new year approaches.
Rowan County residents have carried on the tradition that began 65 years ago with Salisbury Post editor Spencer Murphy.
This year because of contributions from the community, more than 1,000 children and 281 families were served. Any donation at this time will begin the fund for next year.
The Salisbury Post collects the donations and turns them over to the Salvation Army. The local organization distributes gift cards that are used at a local business by eligible families. This year, parents were able to buy gifts for their children from the local retailer, Kmart.
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, NC 28145-4639. Make checks payable to Christmas Happiness Fund and indicate how you want your donation listed.
