And again you post, proving your ignorance. Being "raised around" guns proves nothing, and adds to the stupidity of your statements. You addressed none of what I said. It is not a "high-powered" rifle. It is in the .22 caliber category (.223). Most rifles are larger and more high powered. They are used for small game hunting and target, because of that fact, that are a smaller caliber. Cheaper ammo…

Say WHO? You? Fortunately, the Constitution says differently. Just because you want to give up your rights doesn't mean the rest of us have too. If you don't want to own one of these guns don't buy it.

1 year ago from The Salvation Army

Grant will help feed the hungry

For the seventeenth consecutive year, Rhode Island philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein is offering $1 million to non-profit, anti-hunger agencies throughout the country. He will divide $1 million among all agencies who participate.

Locally, The Salvation Army will receive a part of this $1 million representing a portion of the total dollars we raise for the food pantry from March 1st through April 30th.

The Salvation Army strives to relieve poverty and hunger in an eight county area in Illinois and Missouri 365 days a year. Food is provided to individuals and families through the Family Services’ office food pantries in Quincy and Hannibal. Emergency shelter, rent, utilities, transportation and other assistance are also part of the services provided to those in need.

During 2013, The Salvation Army provided the following: 16,658 meals to shelter residents; 5,575 food baskets through the food pantries, 1,200 Christmas food baskets for families during the holiday season; and 882 meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.

Donations of money and food can be made to The Salvation Army to apply toward the Feinstein Foundation’s matching grant challenge beginning March 1st – April 30th. Donations can be made to The Salvation Army John Gardner Stevenson Family Emergency Shelter & Family Service Center at 501 Broadway in Quincy, IL, or mailed to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 75 – Quincy, IL 62306-0075

For more information contact The Salvation Army at (217) 231-5628.
