Keenage Club donates to Christmas Happiness

Published 12:00 am Friday, December 13, 2013

The members of the Keenage Club at Salem Lutheran Church have been giving to the Christmas Happiness Fund for several years and have again contributed this year.
Rachel Owen, a member of the club whose members are 60 years old and older, said her parents also contributed to the Christmas Happiness Fund.
She said the members gave because they simply “think that’s where it’s needed.”
The 40 members of the club meet once a month for a church service or program for devotions and fellowship. The members have a meal and gather for various related activities at the Salisbury church.
Christmas Happiness contributions are collected at the Salisbury Post. The donations are listed in the paper each day. The Salvation Army of Rowan County distributes those contributions to area families in need. Families receive a voucher to buy Christmas presents for each child who qualifies.
Bring contributions to the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays or mail them to The Salisbury Post Christmas Happiness Fund, P.O. Box 4639, Salisbury, NC 28145-4639.
Make checks payable to the Christmas Happiness Fund and indicate how you wish your donations to be listed.
