Holiday Giving Opportunities

with The Salvation Army of Livingston County 2015

 

The Salvation Army of Livingston County is looking for individuals and groups to help provide HOPE and JOY to almost 700 families this holiday season. Together we can ensure families are not faced with the hard choices of paying a bill or providing Christmas for their children. With friends like you, The Salvation Army of Livingston County can provide resources that restore HOPE and JOY to the holidays. Please consider one to the many giving opportunities that go a long way in making Christmas a possibility for so many Livingston County residents.

Monetary Donations- During the holiday season The Salvation Army hosts its largest fund-raiser of the year, Red Kettles. This fund-raiser helps provide funding for the programs that run throughout the year including: shelter for the homeless, heat in the winter, utility &  rental assistance, meal programs including summer meals for children, holiday meals and much more. This year your extra donation to the kettles or directly to the corps can help continue programs that provide HOPE throughout 2016.
