Salvation Army Red Kettles "Give Back" to the Community

Salvation Army Red Kettles

The Bloomington Corps of the Salvation Army has kicked off its annual Red Kettle Campaign with a goal considerably more ambitious than the one set past year. Felton and Lt. Edward Williams hope to collect $255,000 from the Red Kettles and $260,000 through mail and online contributions.

The holiday season is here, and the red kettles and the Salvation Army's Angel Tree are proof of that.

The tree's ornaments are printed angels that have the name, age, and Christmas gift suggestions for children in need.

Some said it is making them think about what the Democratic party should do differently in the next election. Where did she get the money to pay off insiders in the DNC? She said she tried to be fair.

The community is invited to join the festivities and help start the year's campaign off with a bang.

The Red Kettle campaign will run through December 24. "And this year with all of the hurricanes and all of the tragedies, the Salvation Army needs our help now more than ever", said Rachel Rhodes-Dyar, a Georgia Southern team member. "Texting, Facebook, social media, and all of those sorts of things are really important and we want to stay up with the times". Though facing an exceptional challenge due to the loss of top fundraising locations, the organization still aims to raise $160,000.00 to fund critical programs and services in 2018. Services include food, utility and housing emergency assistance; hunger programs; youth programming and summer camp; disaster assistance; and case management/social services.

The Salvation Army of Knoxville's Area Commander, Major David Worthy emphasizes the importance of the campaign.
