From The Salvation Army of McAllen/Hidalgo County:

Thank you, Hidalgo County, for a successful Community Thanksgiving Meal, Angel Tree Program, and Kettle Season. We couldn't have done it without the support of Small Businesses, Banks, Schools, Winter Texans, Civic Clubs, Churches, Volunteers, Donors, Partner Agencies, Law Enforcement Agencies, Media Partners and the rest of the Community!

The Salvation Army appreciates your continued support in the new year in "Doing the Most Good" for those in need in our community.
