SOS reaches its goal

Although organizers behind the local SOS’ Caring for Kids at Christmas campaign were concerned they were not going to reach their goal this year, the society had a happy New Year after all.

“We were pleasantly surprised,” said executive director of the SOS, Renate Sutherland, reporting that the society actually exceeded their goal of $110,000 by $860.

 

“We’re just very grateful to the coverage we got in The NEWS in particular and on the radio because we had quite a few people who had come in right up to New Years to say they had seen it in the paper or heard it on the radio.”
