“Please know that when you support The Salvation Army, your support stays local to help your neighbors and your community. The Salvation Army has long been recognized as one of the world’s most effective and efficient charities, with roughly 82 of every dollar going to direct assistance,” reminded Major Tom Lyle, The Salvation Army’s Allegheny County Coordinator. “I am hopeful that those in and around the Pittsburgh area and throughout the division will give what they can to help us reach our goals, and that they will remember the less fortunate in their prayers as well. ”
