Dear High Point Community:
The Salvation Army of High Point would like to thank the community for donating and volunteering to help with the many programs offered during the Christmas season! To FOX8, The High Point Enterprise, and other local news organizations, thank you for your commitment to cover each of our events so that local families could have a very Merry Christmas in 2018.
Through your generous donations to the Old Dominion/FOX8 Triad Holiday Food Drive, more than 405,000 food items were collected for families in need across the Triad. Thank you to the Rotary Club of High Point for their leadership and donation through the Designs to Fight Hunger project, by building a train out of cans at Publix in High Point!
Special thanks to The Salvation Army Advisory Board, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club Council, The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, and all of our wonderful volunteers from the community who helped organize toys and ring bells so that we can continue Doing The Most Good for OTHERS!
The Salvation Army would also like to thank each individual and every company who adopted angels, donated toys, bought clothing, or gave financially to provide Christmas gifts to over 600 children in High Point. Through the FOX8 Gifts for Kids campaign, North State and Lowes Home Improvement made incredible donations to provide gifts for children in need. To our local Sheetz partners, thank you for purchasing gifts for families in crisis situations. Thanks to Womak Electric for donating bicycles and to Victory Junction for donating teddy bears!
Thank you to the High Point University students who stuffed over 500 stockings with toys and hygiene items, fulfilling 80% of our total stocking goal; and to Chick-fil-a of High Point for your Stuff a Stocking support! We also express our sincerest thanks to Dr. Qubein and HPU for their partnership in our angel tree program and for allowing us to use the community center to distribute food and gifts to over 300 families in need.
Your generosity continues to bless us into the New Year, through the 32nd annual A Cleaner World Give-a-Kid-a-Coat campaign. Thank you for donating new and gently used coats to help your neighbors stay warm this winter.
On behalf of those served by the ministry of The Salvation Army, we say thank you.
May God bless you!
Majors Gary & Beth Sturdivant, The Salvation Army of High Point Commanding Officers
