Christmas in July hits a home run for local Salvation Army

Aug 4, 2021 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

Catawba Moorings, a popular marina on West Harbor in Port Clinton, led the way to the Salvation Army’s major success in its summertime extravaganza, 2021 Christmas in July.

“Catawba Mooring’s Dockers with Donations really succeeded in generating donations, collecting a shopping cart filled with non-perishable food, school supplies and having $2,303 in the Red Kettle,” said Executive Director Maureen Saponari of The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Center.

“We have to heartily thank Catawba Moorings, and all of our Red Kettle Sites,” said Saponari. “The donations were tremendous at the Friendship Food Stores in Port Clinton and Catawba, and at Twin Oast Brewery. With the collaboration of all of our bell-ringing sites, our donations totaled $3,038 this year.”

The Port Clinton Service Center is proud to serve the local community and appreciates the generous response by our residents and “weekend locals” with going above and beyond to help The Salvation Army Port Clinton Service Center continue its efforts in providing assistance for our community, said Saponari.

The Port Clinton Service Center is currently accepting applications for the Salvation Army’s Tools for School Program. If you would like to make a donation to any of The Salvation Army-Ottawa County programs, please call Saponari at 419-732-2769.
