PAWTUCKET â€” While stores may be festively decorated and Christmas music is playing 24/7 on the radio, the approaching holiday season can often be more stressful than enjoyable for anyone struggling to make ends meet.
That's why The Times is once again supporting its annual â€śMerry Christmas Fund,â€ť which benefits The Salvation Army of Pawtucket. As the communityâ€™s daily newspaper, The Times is part of the fabric of the Blackstone Valley, and its management team and staff believe in the importance of trying to reach out to help local residents in need enjoy a brighter holiday season.
