The St. Clair Rotary Club and its supporters raised $17,558 for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Distribution Day held on December 19 in Port Huron. The proceeds helped provide food, toys, coats and gifts to nearly 1,400 children from 740 families. Bell ringers for the fundraiser included members of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office, the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, the St. Clair High School band, the SCHS National Honor Society, the St. Clair Middle School Junior National Honor Society, and the Pepsi Beverage Distribution Co. of Port Huron.
Attorney Gerry Mason, Vice Chairman of the St. Clair County Salvation Army’s Advisory Board, stated, “Eighty-seven cents of every dollar goes directly to those in need in St. Clair County.”
In addition to Christmas Distribution Day, the Salvation Army assists county residents through its Emergency Disaster Services, Echo Grove Camp, Corps Community Centers, Bed and Bread Club, Harbor Light Addiction Detox, Anti-Human Trafficking, Pathway of Hope, and the William Booth Legal Clinic.
