To the editor:

Thanks to generous support from the Jasper County community, The Salvation Army reached its Christmas fundraising goal. Representing 25-percent of The Salvation Army’s fiscal year budgeted income, the funds raised at Christmastime through the red kettles, checks sent in the mail, and other donations will help The Salvation Army continue to meet needs in Jasper County in the days ahead.

We are thankful for the many individuals and groups who contributed and showed with their gifts and concern that sharing is caring. On behalf of those whose lives show that “need has no season” we thank the Jasper County community for helping to fund assistance programs at The Salvation Army.

The generosity shown to The Salvation Army has warmed our hearts and has helped individuals and families in crisis.

Thank you.
