Letter: Hope is still here in Coatesville

To the Editor, 

Hope continues to march on in the Coatesville community, thanks to the generosity of those who have given to The Salvation Army during the 2021 holiday season.

The Salvation Army in Coatesville, with the help of our partners, volunteers and donors, raised more than $31,000 over the holidays. Funds will fuel the various services and programs we provide year-round to our local community members in need.

The beauty of our Red Kettle fundraising season is that, yes, we do so much to help families in need experience Christmas. But, it’s about so much more than that. Our fundraising during these critical months determines how we can help struggling neighbors all year long. At any given time during the year, someone is in need. Someone is hungry. Someone needs a winter coat or school supplies. Someone is seeking professional counseling or rehabilitation. We would not be able to serve these individuals, had it not been for the community’s donations and outreach over the holidays.

Whether you rang a bell, donated a toy, put some change in your local Red Kettle or donated online, you made a difference for a neighbor who needs help. Thanks to you, someone’s lights will be on for another day. Another meal will be provided. Someone will be clothed. A homeless person will have shelter.

Poverty is not limited to one season. Neither is hope. Thanks to your time, talent and treasure, Hope Marches On in Coatesville and across the Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware region.
