Indiana Grand donates to The Salvation Army Shelbyville
Lieutenant Elizabeth DeLacy, second from right, corp officer of The Salvation Army Shelbyville, was presented with a check for $1,000 from Indiana Grand Racing & Casino Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016. The donation was in response to a recent announcement that the organization had fallen short by $37,000 of their goal following the traditional Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign during the holidays. As a result, several area businesses are stepping up to close the gap on the deficit. Making the presentation to Lieutenant DeLacy were members of the Community Outreach committee at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino from left to right, Tammy Knox, race marketing manager, Jon Schuster, vice president and general manager of racing, (Lieutenant DeLacy) and Lois Coyle-Duffy, director of surveillance.
“The Salvation Army is such a vital part of this community and when we found out they had not reached their goal, we wanted to step up and provide some assistance,” said Jon Schuster, vice president and general manager of racing. “We are hopeful this donation, combined with other support from the community, will provide The Salvation Army with the resources necessary to continue much needed services and support for individuals of this community.”
