MONROE, La. (KTVE/KARD) — The salvation Army of Monroe is holding their annual giving Tuesday fundraiser. The fundraiser will happen on Tuesday November 30th. The purpose of the fundraiser is to help the homeless and the less fortunate in Northeast Louisiana. It is the Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
