When: Saturday, December 8, 2017 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.

The legislators welcome all constituents to stop by the store and help make the fundraising event a success! If you are unable to make it on December 8th, you can also visit the Salvation Army’s website at www.salvationarmyusa.org to learn of other ways to do good this holiday season; for example, by donating cars, clothing, household goods, airline miles, bonds and stocks, or volunteering for the community.

As a group, the Republican caucuses have raised more than $200,000 for the Salvation Army over the past several years. The Salvation Army responds to natural disasters such as wildfires and tornadoes, provides meals and toys to families in need, and conducts research and analyses regarding human needs around the country. They also provide adult rehabilitation, veteran services, elderly services, missing person searches, housing assistance, youth recreation, sponsorship, and support in the fight to end human trafficking.
