To the Community of Georgetown:
We at the Salvation Army in Georgetown would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to the community of Georgetown for their generosity towards our 2017 Christmas campaign. With the support of the community, at Christmas we were able to assist over 360 individuals, including 97 families and over 200 children and teens. We will also have the capacity to asisst many more throughout the year.
Our kettle campaign brought in $75 950 which was just under our target of $79 000. We would like to thank the more than 140 volunteers who contributed upwards of 1400 hours in total to ensure the success of both our kettle campaign and toy drive. Thank you to all the store locations who hosted our kettles allowing us to use some of their space. Thank you also to all of the community organizations, businesses, service clubs, churches and schools who contributed donations and time to our cause. We would like to specifically thank the Business Cares team, the police and the fire department who partnered with us for the toy drive.
This level of support allows us to help those in need in our community throughout the year. Thank you all for your generosity and your time. Thank you Georgetown for allowing us to help the marginalized in our community.
This Sunday in church I challenged everyone to join me in one, clear and focused New Year’s Resolution. To read through the Bible together over the course of 365 days. It is not as daunting as you might think. It actual only involves reading 3 chapters per day. They can be read all at once; or a chapter at morning, noon and at night; or divided according to your schedule.
