Salvation Army and Nanticoke Rotary Club teaming up to help those in need

SUSSEX CO., Del. – The Nanticoke Rotary Club and the Salvation Army are teaming up to achieve one common goal, making sure every family is taken care of this Christmas.

We’re told both organizations are dedicated to giving back to their community. This year, a representative from the Salvation Army tells us they have 75 more families signed up to receive help this Christmas than they did last year.

Between handing on turkeys for Thanksgiving, providing meals, or helping with the angel tree program, both organizations thought it would be better to team up, in hopes of providing meals and gifts to over 200 families.

Capt. Kathryn Alaban with the Salvation Army says, “It’s a huge blessing for us to be able to do this and we’re just so grateful for organizations like Rotary club and others to help us be able to do what we do.” Rob Hemman, Treasurer of the Nanticoke Rotary Club adds, “Again it’s the relationships that you create and through those you find and are able to return and give back to the community.”
