“Recently, award-winning songwriter, Karen SokolofJavitch againoffered us200 of her “Christmastime” CD’s to be given out to each donor,”Eustice explained. “The timing is perfect as our area relies on the publics’ donations as thousands of families struggle this time of the year. Now they can take home a gift in return for their generosity.”
“My holiday CD features performances by The Maynard Triplets and renown Omaha teen singer Grace Bydalek,” Javitch reveals. “I am so grateful to be able to make this donation again to the Salvation Army, whose work we all believe in.”
“Hundreds of volunteer bell ringers make it possible to raise needed funds to support more than 20 human service programs. The CD give-away is a great way to thank our volunteers and encourage others to ring the bell this holiday season” Eustice added.
Grammy Award winner Chuck Pennington arranged the music.
