Holiday Island Community Church's Pastor Jeff Timm recently gave $4,000 to the Salvation Army on behalf of various Holiday Island churches and the Holiday Island Rotary and Elks clubs.

Timm realized there wasn't a presence of the Salvation Army at the Holiday Island Shopping Center and began asking questions about that. He determined that when the local Salvation Army representative died, nobody kept his work going.

Timm and Glenda George of Holiday Island Community Church went to work contacting local churches as well as the Holiday Island Rotary Club and the Holiday Island Elks Club. They eventually got a Salvation Army bucket manned with bell ringers for two weeks at Sun Fest Market. Their efforts resulted in a $4,000 donation to the organization.

A total of 72 people rang the Salvation Army bells over the two-week period. The groups that participated are Holiday Island Baptist Church, Holiday Island Community Church, Faith Bible Church, Holiday Island Presbyterian Church, the Holiday Island Elks Club and the Holiday Island Rotary Club.
