ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The Salvation Army partners with the Chicago White Sox to show their appreciation for Rockford volunteers. 

Former player Michael Huff spoke at the Salvation Army Rockford Temple Corps Community Center Tuesday.

He thanked donors and supporters of the organization.     

The luncheon recognized Christmas volunteers and highlighted last year’s accomplishments. 

Huff says his work with the Salvation Army is a crucial part of his life. 

“For me personally, the Salvation Army again is one, growing up in Chicago, every Christmas, every holiday, seeing those people out there at the corners ringing the bells,” Huff said. “To be able to actually participate and do it myself has been very special and very important in my life.”

Huff played over 150 games with the Sox during the early 90s.
