Chattanoogans should rally around Salvation Army to promote its excellent work

Few charities do more good year-round than The Salvation Army, so when The Salvation Army of Chattanooga is running short of food with which to help the needy, we are happy to urge area residents to give.

The organization's pantry, which feeds about 80 families each month, has undertaken a "Let's Can Hunger" food drive to replenish its shelves.

We urge residents to donate these items, which The Salvation Army says are particularly helpful: hearty soups; canned fruits, vegetables and meats; peanut butter; pasta and sauce; rice and beans; Bisquick and muffin mix; cereal and oatmeal; canned or powdered milk; hamburger or tuna casserole mix; and diapers.

More information can be found at the website csarmy.org, and you can be sure the organization will put your donation to good use.
