Tuesday Lunch Bunch donates to Christmas Happiness Fund
SALISBURY — The Tuesday Lunch Bunch has been gathering for lunch for the past 15 years. The group’s six members, who are retired from the county, hardly miss a Tuesday lunch date.
The group chose to give to the Christmas Happiness Fund this year. They’ve given to the fund for the past three years, said Helen Safrit.
“Instead of buying gifts for each other that none of us really need, we wanted to help someone less fortunate,” Safrit said.
Christmas Happiness supports local children who may not receive gifts for Christmas. The donations are contributed by the community, collected at the Salisbury Post and distributed by the Salvation Army of Rowan County.
The women also donated to the fund in honor of their Sunday school teachers at Salem Lutheran Church on Sherrills Ford Road.
“We are very blessed to have the Sunday school teachers we have,” Safrit said.
A couple of years ago, the group started collecting donations for the fund.
“It’s nice to be able to help others,” Safrit said.
Contributions to the Christmas Happiness Fund 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. Please make checks payable to Christmas Happiness and indicate how you want your donation listed.
