SALISBURY — Christmas is less than two weeks away and contributions from the community for the Christmas Happiness Fund are very much still needed.

The fund assists families at the holidays to buy Christmas gifts for their children. The fund began over 60 years ago as a way to help those in the community. The Salisbury Post collects the donations and the Salvation Army distributes the money to local families.

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.
