Donations are needed

Dear Editor,
It’s the time of year when all across the community you hear the Salvation Army bell ringers out and about in the community, and see our donation envelopes in your local newspaper.
But this year the need is even greater and it is our hope that you might consider dropping some change into one of the red kettles while you are out shopping, or using one of the envelopes to mail in a donation.
It is a sad reality that we are seeing more need among our neighbors this year.
Being able to provide the assistance that is needed to help people in crisis throughout the year comes from your generosity during this holiday season.
Giving to your local Salvation Army makes an impact directly in your community, and 88 percent of the funds raised during the Christmas season stays to assist families and individuals who live right here with things like rent/mortgage assistance, utility assistance, prescription medication, and many other critical needs.
We are so thankful to all those who have volunteered and those who have donated.
We cannot thank you enough for everything that you do and or your support.
Please consider giving again so that we can meet needs right here.
God bless you all, and Merry Christmas,
Randall Summit,
Salvation Army,
Kansas & Western Missouri,
Kansas City, Mo.
