Ready, willing and table?

The Salvation Army is famous for helping others put food on the table, but ironically, the local branch is currently short of tables themselves.

They are asking community minded individuals, businesses, churches, and agencies, to please check their storage areas for extra folding tables which they might donate to the organization without any hardship to themselves. With Christmas right around the corner, the need is pressing as The Army not only uses tables to sort the thousands of toys that come in through their Angel Tree program, but also for kettle counting, dinners, seasonal meetings and sorting cans from holiday food drives. Most of the tables The Salvation Army currently has are 6-foot plastic rectangles, but the staff is not picky about the size or composition of possible donations, as long as they are sturdy.

Anyone willing to donate tables may either drop them off at The Salvation Army at 601 Colonial Avenue, or call Beverly Earley at 489-2530, extension 201, to arrange for a pick up.
