Salvation Army gets donation

Commandant Gary Armstrong of the Silver State Detachment No. 630 Marine Corps League hands a check for $350 to Lt. Leslie Cyr of The Salvation Army Carson City. The check will be used to replenish the funds the Salvation Army used to provide backpacks to students in need. This was the first year the demand for backpacks has outweighed donations, according to organizers, who said the need has tripled in the past three years.
