Giant Food Stores donate to Salvation Army of York

The Salvation Army of Washtenaw County has a couple of opportunities for people to help provide local families with what they need for the holiday season.

The Angel Tree program has a goal of providing gifts for 850 children this year, and the deadline to contribute is December 17, DeGregorio said.

"Whoever did this knows the good that will come of it", said Salvation Army Capt. Marcos Marquez, officer of The Salvation Army's Moore Street Corps.

In addition to individual contributors dropping money in those bright red kettles, The Salvation Army is hoping for some additional support from the business community at this time of year to give the campaign the boost it needs. The religious organization said it had raised a little more than 30 percent of its $750,000 goal.

"We run a bare-bones operation here with the Booth Center homeless shelter, which runs 24/7, and so that's a great expense and we need to help people in need through other avenues of Salvation Army ministry as well food pantry, clothing vouchers, those type of things", he said.

"I am happy the money we collected will go directly towards helping struggling families in our community", Kupchick said.

The Salvation Army Isle of Wight homeless service is opening its doors to the homeless from now until the end of March.

The donation is believed to be the largest cash donation in a single kettle in the Portland area. It also is accepting donations at donate.salvationarmyusa.org and in person at 2901 N. Clinton St.
