'Tis the season for giving

Eighty-five percent of every dollar donated provides direct assistance locally

(Continued)

Tonight’s showing of The Christmas Story, at 7 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre, 1124 Meridian Plaza, is also being sponsored by The Herald Bulletin with all proceeds benefiting the Empty Stocking Fund.

Marak said every donation made this year will help someone in need. He said local residents have always gone out of their way to support their community; he just hopes they continue to be generous.

“The people in Madison County are very community minded,” he said. “They care for people and by helping the Salvation Army their money will be given to people in need in Madison County.”
