LACONIA — The Salvation Army in Laconia is struggling this year to find donors to purchase gifts for needy children whose families are experiencing financial difficulties.
"It's heartbreaking to hear some of the the stories of how folks are struggling. One grandparent, who was on a fixed income, found themselves with full custody of their three3 grandchildren after their mom passed away suddenly. He has no clue how he is going to swing everything, but is grateful for any kind of help he can receive. Unfortunately, many of our large organizations have decided to go a different route this year to the amount of over 150 angel tags not being disturbed at their sites," says Captain Sally Warren.
She says that each angel tag represents a child in need with three toy wishes on each tag.'' Last year we helped 599 kids receive 3 toys each for Christmas and it appears that the need is even greater this year. A few of our donors like The Bank of New Hampshire and Freudenburg-NOK have stepped up and made donations or have been able to take a few extra tags this season, but we are still struggling,'' syas Warren.
She urges those who would like to help and purchase toys for needy children this Christmas season, can bring an unwrapped gift to Belknap Tire in Laconia, or Angel Tags in Gilford at Walmart, Meredith Village Savings Bank, and The Bank of New Hampshire. In Laconia, tags can be found at The Bank of New Hampshire, Meredith Village Savings Bank, and at The Salvation Army on Union Ave. Shaws in Belmont, Hannafords and Meredith Village Savings Bank in Meredith are a few other locations tags are located.
Organizations can also call and request tags to hang on a tree in their location at 524-1834. ''Please help bring a smile to a needy child this Christmas season.'' said Warren.
