Local Salvation Army struggling to help citizens


By Scott Harvey

Bonham – The Fannin County Salvation Army is seeking additional funds to help local families.

Bonham Police Chief Mike Bankston runs the county chapter, and says lately there have been a lot of requests for electrical assistance as the extreme heat makes for high energy costs.

The Fannin County Salvation Army helped over 300 families last year, by way of emergency housing, groceries and clothing.

Donations can be made through The American Bank of Texas in Bonham.
