Thanks for giving

This letter was originally addressed to Salvation Army contributors and volunteers.Dear Editor:On behalf of your local Salvation Army, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for your generous contributions, or in giving your time tending a kettle. Your generosity helped raise over $12,000 from the kettles stationed at Clark’s and City Market in Aspen.A special commendation must go to all the volunteers who tended the kettles and rang a bell; you gave your time, which is the best gift of all. Special thanks to the store managers at Clark’s and City Market and to Alpine Bank who counted the collections. To all of you, who helped in any way, your gift of caring and sharing will be returned with blessings.This holiday season was a great opportunity to share our blessings. How often we wish to reach out and help others, if only we had time. Contributing to the kettle is a way to help those who help others. It is a way to receive happiness by helping the Salvation Army in its work of helping the needy and working poor, as “Need Knows No Season.”During this special season let us give thanks to God for all his blessings. May God bless you for your generosity. May God continue to bless and protect our nation. May peace and goodwill among men always prevail.Jim MarkaIunas Salvation Army
