Salvation Army grateful for support at fire

I have only been in Alpena three weeks, and already I have seen the generosity and kindness of the people of Alpena County.

Tuesday, our Salvation Army canteen was out serving the first responders at the fire in downtown Alpena.

During that time, we received donations to assist us in serving those working hard to put out the fire and save the other buildings. We received bags of ice from Cabin Creek Coffee, apples, bananas, and energy bars from Neiman’s Family Market, and a monetary donation from an anonymous donor.

We are grateful for your kindness and selfless giving.

I also am grateful for my volunteer Emergency Disaster Team members, Joe and Joyce Demski, for the hours they stayed on site to serve. What a great community to be a part of.

The Salvation Army appreciates the continued support of our programs to serve the community the best way we know, with our sleeves rolled up. Prayers and blessings for those affected by the fire.
