Give the Christmas Spirit at a Red Kettle Near You!

Give the Christmas Spirit at a Red Kettle Near You!

The Red Kettle Campaign is one of the longest-running and most recognizable fundraising efforts in the world. However, do you know the ones that fearless the elements to help our neighbors?

If you're thinking of giving, Salvation Army spokesperson Shannon Wise says the greatest need this year is for toys for kids up to two years old. The 1 percent drop, however, compares favorably with the previous year, when donations declined by 10 percent.

With one week left, The Salvation Army, is hoping Calgarians can come together to raise thousands more towards The Salvation Army Kettle Campaign.

The second gold coin was found in the kettle being manned by a team from the East Alton First United Methodist Church on Friday, Dec. 8 at the Wood River Walmart.

Baggett never complains about the cold or asks for very much.

"I'm shocked and pleased to have this blessing in our red kettle".

The girls were all invited to represent the Blackburn branch of The Salvation Army Band in the performance which was shown live on CBBC. It's a trend being felt across the country.

Google just launched a new version of Android for low-budget phones
Google claims that this makes it easy to find top websites and apps, trending images and gifs, and more with minimal typing. Files Go was built from scratch for Go edition devices, and today the official version launched on the Google Play Store.

"Reaching our goal this year is going to require a big outpouring of support from the community between now and Christmas", said Deborah Sedlar, the western division commander.

Catholic Social Services director Mike Tonks said people were no longer dealing with income issues alone and social isolation and family issues were becoming more common.

The Salvation Army said sometimes local groups or businesses only fulfill half of the angels they adopt.

Scroggins said holiday music and younger bell ringers usually lead to more contributions.

"So she called us, just frantic".

The woman said since she got her ring back, she has not taken it off. That was like 30 years ago.

Wicke attributed the losses this year to increases in online shopping and not enough bell ringers, both paid and volunteer. And we help entire families build a plan to move toward financial independence through our programs.
