Mill Creek Lions help Salvation Army serve holiday meals

The Mill Creek Community Lions Club recently made a cash donation to the Salvation Army for help with the expenses of preparing meals during the holiday season. From left are club secretary Marolyn Klockow, Capt. Chris Karlin of the La Porte Salvation Army, and club president Thomas Sharp. Karlin, who has worked in La Porte for a year, helped serve 45,000 meals this year, including 35,000 from the Salvation Army food truck from March through July. More than 600 kids are also served through the weekend backpack program. The La Porte Salvation Army goal for this year’s Red Kettle campaign is $70,000, and the organization is also looking for volunteer bell-ringers.
