Chapter Community Outreach: Salvation Army
2006, Q3 (March 05, 2007)
By Pam Harris

One of our Carolina chapter missions this year is to do more for our local community.

As many of you may remember, Christine Shaw from the Salvation Army collected "Coats for the Children" at our December meeting last year. We plan to continue working with her to provide community outreach via the Salvation Army.

As the holidays approach, there are many needed items on the Salvation Armys "Holiday Wish List." At our December 14, 2006, membership meeting at Misys Healthcare Systems, we will collect items on the list, as well as any coats you wish to donate.

If you would like to volunteer at the Salvation Army in additional ways, contact me for a copy of the "2006 Seasonal Volunteer Opportunities" for information on the Angel Tree at Crabtree Valley Mall, coat give-aways, the toy shop, and more.
