The Salvation Army in Danville ended its 2012 fundraising season just $4,600 short of its $100,000 goal.
At the close of business on Dec. 24, the total raised was $95,400.
With its seasonal fundraising drive over, The Salvation Army in Danville has a long list of people it wants to thank, including volunteers, donors and businesses.
The volunteers collectively donated hundreds of hours in service.
Lt. Jason Burns, commander of the local Army, said, “We would like to thank our donors for both Angel Tree as well as the Red Kettle effort who have given generously. We would like to thank the stores that have graciously allowed us to stand in front of their locations and adopted Angels. This year through the support of the community, over 750 children received hope this Christmas.”
