VFW makes $1,000 donation to Hattiesburg Salvation Army

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Salvation Army has gotten a special holiday gift from a Hub City veterans organization.

Tuesday, VFW Post 3036 donated $1,000 to the Salvation Army. The money will be used to help area veterans in need.

The funds were initially raised for large, annual holiday gatherings at the VFW, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, post members decided to give the money to the Salvation Army.
