PIQUA — The Piqua Salvation Army and area businesses have once again partnered to present the Puttin’ for a Purpose Corporate Challenge and miniature golf.

The Corporate Challenge will be held March 10, beginning at 5:30 p.m. This night provides area businesses a chance to compete. Special recognition for the night is given to the following sponsors: Hartzell Propeller Inc., Upper Valley Medical Center/Premier Health, P&R Specialty, and Hemm’s Glass Shop.

Puttin’ for a Purpose allows the public to contribute to the Salvation Army’s Summer Youth Feeding Program and enjoy a round of mini-golf at the same time. For $3 per game, participants can play 18 holes that were constructed by local companies around the them of the service or product they provide. Public play hours are 4-8 p.m. March 9 and 11, noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 12, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 13.

“This is a unique project and one that I have never been involved with during my tenure with The Salvation Army,” said Major Earline May of the Salvation Army in Piqua. “This is a great way to have fun and support the great work of the Summer Youth Feeding Program.”

The Salvation Army provides over 8,000 meals to at-risk youth during the summer months, when schools are closed for break. This is made possible by the work of individuals and volunteer organizations.
