To the Editor:
Once again this year, the Island has proved its extreme generosity in giving to our annual Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign.
We thank all our volunteers who stood by our kettles, the merchants who granted us permission to place kettles in their places of business, and the many, many individuals who made donations.
Our Island service unit is supported financially by these contributions. All donations to these kettles are designated for local use.
Under the guidance of divisional headquarters in Canton, the Martha’s Vineyard Service Unit uses these funds entrusted to them to meet community needs year-round.
We are always striving and working toward sustaining the services we provide across Martha’s Vineyard for years to come. If you would like more information on how we are serving and how you can help, please call us at 774-563-9436. Or write to the Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1996, Vineyard Haven, 02568
