From THE SALVATION ARMY BOWLING GREEN CENTER
The Salvation Army will be distributing holiday
food baskets and toys to over 250 families on Wednesday, December 20. The food baskets consist
of a basic holiday meal, however we rely on gift card donations for our families to purchase the meat for
their holiday baskets.
Over 600 families have preregistered for Christmas assistance throughout Wood County; many
have been sponsored by individuals, businesses, organizations and churches. Families who have not
been sponsored will pick up their items on the 20th. We are grateful we are continuing to receive toy
donations; however, we are also in immediate need of gift cards from any local grocery store in $10-$20
increments. These gift cards will allow our families to purchase the meat to complete their holiday food
Please drop off gift card donations at The Salvation Army office located at 1045 N. Main St. in
the Marco’s Pizza plaza. Our office hours are Monday thru Friday 9:00 am to Noon and 1:00 pm to 4:00
pm. Thank you for your continued support of The Salvation Army’s holiday programs.
