Salvation Army offers thanks

The Salvation Army thanks you. You know who you are...

The Salvation Army thanks you. You know who you are…

• You have little to give but share plenty.

• You spent many hours and walked many miles organizing and collecting food for the hungry.

• You lifted heavy bins and sorted many piles to stock our shelves for Christmas.

• You stay awake so others can sleep safely.

• You broadcast what we are doing for all to hear.

• You give of your talents while ringing those bells.

• You give us hours of your time — no expectation of compensation.

• You prepare a Christmas meal and serve many.

• Your club raises money and together with a grocer it multiplies.

• You take memorable snapshots of joyous times with loved ones.

• You give to us when it’s your turn to get.

• You spend months preparing to share with us what Christmas is all about.
