CADIZ – The Salvation Army will help more people through the harsh winter after Rosebud Mining Co. made a $4,000 contribution to the organization Tuesday.
Michael Jamison, general manager of Ohio operations, handed the check to Salvation Army Director Andy Hutyera, who said it capped off this year’s kettle campaign.
Hutyera said businesses have been very supportive and are helping to fill a growing need, especially with increasing unemployment numbers.
The check was icing on the cake after the organization raised nearly $18,000 through public donations and kettle collections at the conclusion of the campaign. Hutyera believed it was the most the effort has raised and was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming response.
“We’re grateful for the good sponsors like Rosebud and think this is a good way to end the kettle drive,” he said.
Contributions may be made to the program, while the unit also has an endowment fund for further assistance. Interest from the fund supplies 60 percent of the budget but the kettles and contributions have been a further benefit. Funds have been used to pay for clients’ utility bills and help stock the Cadiz Food Pantry. Hutyera said 300 clients are helped per year, while the organization provides to the pantry on a monthly basis.
Meanwhile, Jamison said the company was simply giving back to the community.
“Rosebud wants to be a good neighbor in the community and help the Salvation Army. We see a bright future in the county, provided the government allows utilities to burn coal. I appreciate the work that Andy’s doing and what the Salvation Army does. We have an obligation to help those who are in need.”
He said company President J. Clifford Forrest authorized the donation because he believed in the Salvation Army and its mission.
“He thinks it’s doing good work and wants to support causes in this county,” Jamison commented.
