You can help Salvation Army with gifts, food

The Salvation Army plans to provide Christmas presents to 561 Pasco children — but gifts are still needed for more than 300 children, Center of Hope manager Jeanne Coulter said. How can you help? Stop by the Salvation Army's Angel Tree at the north entrance of Gulfview Square Mall, 9409 U.S. 19, and take a paper angel with a child's wish list. Gifts should be returned by Dec. 19. The families of the kids who will receive the gifts will also receive a holiday food box. The cost to fill a food box is $30 and donations are accepted. For information, call Coulter at (727) 847-6321, ext. 101.
