Salvation Army receives $260 grand from the United Way of Escambia Co.
The United Way of Escamiba County is giving 260,000 dollars in grants to the Salvation Army.
That funding comes from the United Way's "workplace campaign."
The annual campaign generated more than two-million dollars.
The money was distributed to thirty different non-profit organizations.
Some of the programs received funding for three years.
Andrea Krieger, United Way of Escambia County, "Many donors, over 10,000 donors, give what they can. And they can make a huge difference in our community in areas of education, health issues, which we know with all the live well stuff going on is a true body of need in our community, and then financial stability. The poverty in our community is pretty rough to bear for many families."
United Way will kick off its next workplace campaign in September.
