The Salvation Army in Petersburg wrapped up its distribution of Christmas food baskets and gifts to children and families in need on Friday. The church and its volunteers gives out holiday turkeys and other food supplies right before Thanksgiving and Christmas each year and also has a program for people to donate gifts to local youngsters. Joe Viechnicki talked with Salvation Army lieutenants Caleb and Christin Fankhauser Friday just after the food distribution and asked about how the season’s gone so far.
