Kettle campaign sets ambitious goal

New to the Christmas Kettle campaign this year is a pilot project, which Sadowy is hoping to see rolled out in December, and will allow the option of digital payments at some locations. "Our goal is to raise $18,000 in donations this year".

The Salvation Army of Waynesville is kicking-off the annual Red Kettle Campaign on November 17. "People come in for help nearly every day".

During the event, Turlock Unified School District presented Shrum with a check for $4,040, which was raised through coin drives at the elementary sites throughout the district and a halftime kettle dash by high school students through the bleachers at this year's Harvest Bowl.

"Granting Christmas wishes to children in need is an extremely rewarding initiative", said Denise Yamauchi, Managing Director for Kazi Restaurants of Hawai'i, Inc. Funds collected during the campaign will provide for families and individuals across the state during the holiday season and year-round, sustaining the vital programs and services from The Salvation Army that help people in need manage their daily lives.

Allen leads No. 1 Duke past No. 2 Michigan State 88-81
Can Michigan State end the 12-year drought of beat Duke? He now leads the team in scoring, rebounds, and minutes played. I think the Spartans will take their learning experiences from a year ago and turn it into some big wins this year.

"We're working on it at the moment so we don't have confirmed details just yet", Sadowy said.

All the money donated through the kettle campaign in Kingston, stays in Kingston, and goes to help those in need locally. "We raised $16,000 previous year".

"Today we come together a as powerful group that can change the lives of many", he said.

"We always help between 400-500 at Christmas", said Sgt. -Maj.
