Appeal for public to help those in need
As demand for the Salvation Army's services increases, the organisation is asking Bermudians to consider making a charitable donation.
Last year, the religious movement's Bermuda branch helped more than 2,000 families in need during the Christmas period.
As Christmas approaches its members have again been busy preparing hampers for families and seniors, as well as gift bags for children.
Donations are vital to help meet demand, according to Major Frank Pittman, who is the divisional commander for the Salvation Army in Bermuda.
“Vulnerable Bermudians rely on the Salvation Army, and we are grateful for the generosity of our donors to provide them with a sense of dignity and respect,” he said.
If you would like to give, call the organisation's Devonshire headquarters on 292-0601.
