Last year Rep. McCarty and Sen. Formica’s collection contributed to the more than $260,000 that the House Republican Caucus has raised as a whole for the Salvation Army over the past several years.

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 18th, you can donate directly on the Salvation Army’s website at – where you can also 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.

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.
