"Our goal is to raise at least $30,000 to support The Salvation Army's local programs serving homeless and at-risk families," said Linda Barker, Women's Auxiliary president. "In recent years, The Salvation Army has experienced increased demand for their services as donations have declined. The funds we raise will help meet the extraordinary need that exists in our community."
