Salvation Army red kettles half way to Christmas goal

When you donate to The Salvation Army, your gift truly makes a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

The owners of a doughnut shop in Maine, Holy Donut, had to publicly apologize for asking The Salvation Army to help them find a family in need this Christmas after they were attacked online earlier this month.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign is its largest fundraiser, so telling people I had again signed up for a two-hour shift as a bell ringer for the nonprofit had a nice "ring" to it.

"Every year we see new faces, new situations" at Western Fair, Wise said. Curtis Baggett is a Salvation Army Bell Ringer. Next week, on Monday and Tuesday, needy families can pick up a hamper - which includes all the ingredients for a traditional Christmas dinner, including turkey, carrots and potatoes - from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. on both days. "We're always in need of volunteers", Wise said. "Often times, people get irritated about all the commercialization of this time of year".

"Now we're asking our community to help us reach our goal financially". While The Salvation Army provides feeding and sheltering to address the foundational need, we provide much more than that.

The Salvation Army depends on the support of numerous corporate partners, including many individual retailers, who allow Christmas kettles to be placed at their stores each year.

The money raised through the competition will be used locally to help meet the basic needs of those experiencing difficulties this holiday season.

The woman said since she got her ring back, she has not taken it off.

"This afternoon our hearts were broken when over 150 angels were returned to us unsponsored", states a post by the Salvation Army of Horry County.
