The Salvation Army will maintain its hours of operation for the both the men and women/family facilities at the Rust Transitional Center after coming very close to its Christmas Campaign goal of $200,000.
The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with thousands of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.
Donations provide dinners, clothing, and toys for families in need. Financial assistance also helps with basic necessities continuing aid throughout the year.
