Lieutenant James Labbe and Major Joy Labbe thanks volunteer for their support to local families last month.
To the editor: The Salvation Army in Mystic Valley would like to thank local businesses, residents and organizations that donated to the Holiday drive and for the generous donations to assist us with our programming for 2013. This year we received special attention from the Malden High Athletic department. When Catherine Murray read on Facebook that The Salvation Army in Malden did not have enough turkeys for families in need this past Thanksgiving, she did something about it. She worked to recruit Malden High Athletic teams, cheerleaders and coaching staff. In turn they raised money to not only buy turkeys, but to help with the Christmas toy effort. We also recognize those who adopted a family and made their Christmas very special. There …

The teams provided meals for 244 families this holiday season.
When Catherine Murray read on Facebook that The Salvation Army in Malden did not have enough turkeys for families in need this past Thanksgiving, she did something about it. She worked to recruit Malden High Athletic teams, cheerleaders and coaching staff to raise money to not only buy more turkeys, but to help with the Christmas toy effort. Through these efforts, meals were provided for 244 families and 50 gift cards were purchased for children who would not have otherwise had any gifts on Christmas. Overall, nearly 4,000 toys were distributed by the Mystic Valley Salvation Army this year! Way to go Catherine and way to go Malden!

Got extra gifts, or items you no longer need? Here are some places they can go.
The day after Christmas, called "Boxing Day" in some countries, is traditionally a day of organizing and donating. In the U.S., it marks the beginning what some stores call the "returns season." In homes in Malden, it might mean that on December 27th folks have a few extra items lying about that they no longer need. Whether they're duplicate gifts, replacements for items that still have some usability left, or clothing that doesn't fit but can't be returned, if you've got things to donate, here's where to go: There's no Salvation Army Drop-Off Site in Malden, but clothes and goods can be dropped off at two sites in neighboring towns: Salvation Army Family Store 456 Broadway Chelsea, MA 0215 Driving Directions Salvation Army Family Store …

The Salvation Army is putting a spin on the popular summertime outing, offering free produce to local residents in need.
There's a lot of buzz about the Malden Farmers Market this month, but one local service agency is putting a unique spin on the concept: making it free. The Malden Salvation Army has started what they call a “Free Farmers Market,” sponsored intermittently throughout the closing days of Summer. Volunteers collect fresh produce from the Boston Food Bank - watermelon, corn, carrots, and more – and leave them in reusable bags outside of the center's 213 Main St. location. “We plan on doing this on a regular basis during the summer months,” the center's new director, James Labbe said. “We feel that this (is) a great way to provide fresh produce for those that live in the area.” While the events have no set schedule, interested residents can …
