The Salvation Army in Huntington received a boost from some members of law enforcement.
On Friday, the Cabell County Sheriff's Association presented the Salvation Army with a check of $500. The money will help families struggling with paying utility bills, food, or Christmas gifts. One of the deputies said the association gave up a holiday dinner so it could contribute more to the donation fund.
The Salvation Army relies solely on donations so the organization is thankful for the association's contribution. "People in this community make it happen. If they don't donate and help us, we're not able to help the people who come to us. My wife and I have been here six months, but we've been blessed to make it into a community so loving," Maj. Matt Riley of the Huntington Salvation Army said.
The Salvation Army has kicked off the Red Kettle Campaign, and volunteers are always needed to ring the bells at various locations.
