Major Bill Mockabee, Salvation Army Area Commander for Central Arkansas, expressed how important the program is for those it helps.
“This can be a life-changing situation,” Mockabee said.
Mockabee said the turnout has been typical, but the problem of inflation has concerned him.
“With inflation, we’re really concerned, we still have seven hundred angels that are still left to be adopted,” he said.
