I want to extend a very heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all the volunteers, families, kids, dogs and choirs that rang the bells for Salvation Army and POM this holiday season! We heard a lot of great stories and it sounds like everyone had a lot of fun. I wanted to let you know that this year is a record! The total reached $8,019.24!!! That is over $1,000 more than last year! I’m sure it had to do with your smiling faces and excitement for the season!
Because of the efforts of this community, we receive direct financial benefits as an extension office of The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army provides $12,000 each year for utility and rental assistance for Plateau area families. In 2012 they extended an additional $14,655 in Warm Home energy assistance and provided scholarships for 16 Plateau area kids to go to summer camp! We are very thankful for all The Salvation Army does for our local families through POM. Thanks to the generosity of this community in ringing the bells, The Salvation Army support will continue to help our neighbors this coming year!
