Good Evening Everyone,
My mother grew up during the Great Depression both here and in Europe and she often reminisced about how difficult her life was when she was young. One of the few bright spots were the times when the local branch of the Salvation Army would bring her family food, clothes, and at times, toys. She was always very grateful to the men and women who did that and she always admired and respected the work that the Salvationists do.
In lieu of flowers or cards I’m going to ask all of my friends and family this season to make a donation to the Salvation Army in memory of my mom. If you would like to make a donation in her memory then please mail a check in any amount to:
The Salvation Army
2445 Prior Avenue North
Roseville, MN 55113
You can also do this online at: https://secure20.salvationarmy.org/donation.jsp
Or you can call them direct at 1-800- SAL-ARMY to make a credit card donation by phone.
Please write the following: “In Memory of Vera Naponelli Schwab” on memo line of the check or if you contribute on line, there is a text box on the web page that will allow you to write this information in.
If you would rather make a local donation, then simply drop your donation into the nearest Red Kettle this season and remember my mom when you do so.
Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Vickie Schwab Woodcock
