Jeff Mays said something like with the voters passing the referendum to build the schools the voters also showed they put their faith and trust in the school board to make decisions and do what is right.. Uh lets not get carried away Mr. Mays. I didn't see that on the ballot and I think the public still has concerns!

Sounds like something a bitter woman would do because her man left her for someone actually having a job and prospects and not being negligent to her children. When the alleged near car collision fails, they just end up claiming rape or domestic abuse, and because of VAWA and the fact that they are women, 'THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT' ! Go girl power. Thank you feminist dems! You make the rocking…

Salvation Army Auxiliary celebrating 50th Dress an Angel project

8 months, 3 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is celebrating its 50th Dress an Angel Clothing Project. 

For 50 years, the Auxiliary women have been providing a new Easter outfit and Bible for over 300 children in the Quincy area. 

Local churches, community groups, organizations and many individuals through the years have donated items and financial support for the program. 

Major Cheryl Miller, Senior Officer for the Kroc Center, said this program is needed for children in the area.

“This is an opportunity for us to share with needy children in our area who don’t have that new outfit for Easter that so many Children get. Sometimes those kids are left out and don’t get to feel as special as we want them to be. We have found this as a unique was to share God’s love with other people.”

The Salvation Army needs community support for this on-going program. The public can donate new clothing (children sizes infant to 16/18) or with a financial donation for the purchase of new clothing, Bibles and personal care items. 

Clothing and other items may be dropped off at the Kroc Center. Checks should be made out to The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary.

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20.
