Salvation Army looks to send kids to camp: The Salvation Army in Haverhill is seeking donations to help fund a summer camp for children from Haverhill and Groveland. The cost for a week of camp is $300 and the goal is to send 50 kids to the Salvation Army-accredited camp, which is run by The Salvation Army in Sharon. Salvation Army Lt. Jeff Hardy said many deserving children cannot afford to pay and without help will lose this valuable experience. Donations small or large can be sent to The Salvation Army, 395 Main St., Haverhill, MA 01830. More information is available from Hardy at 978-374-7571.
