Keith Jache, co-corp commander, said Punxsutawney is a very generous community, and the Salvation Army is confident that residents will help the organization meet its goal.

“Punxsy has always been a very generous community, and we thank them for all the help they’ve given us over the years,” he said.

Currently, the Salvation Army has raised $28,628.
