Many families are on our lists who will wel come donations, for they are needy and deserving. I trust that monej; .an. well as food and clothing will he donated this year, for in some of the cases money is needed to supply other wants than food and clothing "The Salvation Army has visited every poor home In the city." said Cap tain Stevens yesterday, "and we have found none destitute.
