Mayo Clinic donated $78,000 this week to the Rochester Salvation Army, according to Mayo spokeswoman Kelly Reller.

Salvation Army Major Jim Frye called it "an important donation" that will be used to support Good Samaritan Health Clinic, Caring Partners Adult Day Program and Transitional Living & Counseling.

"We are so grateful to Mayo Clinic for their continued support," Frye said in a written statement. "These programs are life-changing to those individuals and families utilizing our services. By contributing to the Salvation Army, Mayo Clinic is helping bring hope and to meet the needs to so many."

The Salvation Army was established in London more than 150 years ago and routinely serves more than 25 million Americans in need of a wide range of social services. The services include food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, clothing and shelter for the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children, among other things.
