SUNBURY – A few more late contributions have been submitted to this year’s Needy Family Fund. After over $600 in recent donations, this year’s grand total now stands at $116,774.05. Recent contributions include $561.25 from Catawissa Avenue United Methodist Church in Sunbury, and $75 from Luther Stauffer of Middleburg.
The Daily Item, BB&T, Salvation Army, Degenstein Foundation and Sunbury Broadcasting Corp. are partners in the Needy Family Fund. The proceeds will be split between Milton and Sunbury Salvation Army, and reimburse them for thousands of dollars in toys, food, clothing and gifts distributed to nearly 500 families prior to Christmas.
