Stocking stuffers start working for Salvation Army

November 16, 2004

Albany- Donations for many charities are way down and that includes the Salvation Army.

The Albany Salvation Army still needs to provide Christmas presents to about 800 children. Tuesday night, the members of Gillionville Baptist Church's Women of Faith Sunday school class stuffed stockings with goodies and outfitted bears and dolls for those children.

"Without the Albany community, the Salvation Army can't make it happen," said Pamela Barkley, with the Salvation Army. "I mean, we really rely on our community to step forward and help us with making the children in our community have a happy Christmas."

The Salvation Army still needs money, presents and food for the holiday season.
