Help us, help Haines this Christmas


December 12, 2019

I would like to personally thank all those in the Haines community who have been so generous this Christmas season. We have had so many in this great community give back by volunteering at the Kettle and giving donations of not only money but toys and food. Because of the fact that Thanksgiving fell so late in the year, it took away about eight days of our kettle season, which is what helps carry us through the summer months. Although we still have a couple weeks to go before Christmas, we are starting to fall behind. As always I would like to be open and upfront with our fundraising campaign this Christmas season. As of Dec. 10, 2019 we are down on donations by $1,300, compared to this time last year. I just felt that if we made Haines aware of the need they would step up and help us to reach our goal for this season. Your last-minute generous donations will help us to continue to meet the needs of your friends and neighbors, by giving them a “hand up” when they need it. Once again we thank all the donors, volunteers and friends of The Salvation Army, as you “Help Us, Help Haines.” God bless.
