The Salvation Army of Pulaski County is very happy to announce that we EXCEEDED our fundraising goal for 2020!
We had a goal of $90,000 for our local funraising and raised a little over $112,000. This shatters our prior fundraising record. Amazing!
We want to send out our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful donors, our incredible bell-ringers, our business partners, and all thosewho worked "behind the scenes" to make this happen.
The generosity of everyone in the Pulaski County area is truly a blessing.
There were a lot of challenges this year with the pandemic. Thanks to everyone who followed our COVID procedures and helped keep our community safe.
Because of this record fundraising success we will now be able to fully fund all of our assistance/benevolence programs and provide a record amount of support to the less fortunate in our area.
