SUNBURY — The Salvation Army’s Here. For Good. campaign is at $140,521.72.
The campaign is a continuation of the Needy Family Fund that has raised more than $3.06 million since 1987 during the holidays to assist the Valley’s less fortunate. The campaign is administered by Salvation Army citadels in Milton and Sunbury and sponsored by The Daily Item, Sunbury Broadcasting Corp. and Mifflinburg Bank & Trust. The 1994 Charles B. Degenstein Foundation also matched the first $50,000 in donations.
The highest total came in 2013 with $145,128. This year is the second-highest total in the campaign’s history.
The goal was $115,000. Today’s total is thanks to $1,000 from St. John UCC.
Donors can make checks payable to Here. For Good. campaign and mail or drop them off at any location of program co-sponsor Mifflinburg Bank & Trust. Donors can also make any deposited donation or mail a check to 250 E. Chestnut St., Mifflinburg, PA, 17844, or donate online at www.hereforgoodcampaign.org.
