Bell ringers needed for Salvation Army red kettles in Waseca

Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle

The Salvation Army of Greater Winston-Salem now has a large building for its Christmas toy-distribution program, which will begin today and run through Friday.

By 11 a.m., fewer than 20 bicycles remained and very few bags of toys and food.

"We use the funds we raise for people who come through town or that have moved to town that are facing a hard time", said Veroeven. "I'll work whenever they need me and I'll go wherever they need me", but he's partial to his old stomping ground at WalMart.

Literally hundreds of thousands of Western Pennsylvanians are assisted by The Salvation Army each year during times of crisis.

"Full coverage would help ensure our goal is reached", said Kromm, "Our kettles are staffed 100 per cent by volunteers - individuals, families, businesses, service clubs and other groups". A new blitz for the annual Red Kettle campaign is aimed at changing that. Salvation Army Traverse City in 2016 supplied more than 50,000 services to 12,000 local residents.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Salvation Army served over 200 meals in Altus at the 7th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner and anticipate serving just as many meals at the Christmas Dinner in Hollis coming up on December 21.

"We know the people of Whitehorse are generous and supportive of their community, and we hope donations pick up the closer we get to Christmas".

The Angel Tree program provides gifts to less fortunate families, and the Salvation Army is preparing for the distribution of those gifts.

"The Salvation Army is committed to continue fighting for good throughout the county - standing ready to combat hopelessness and despair wherever it may exist", said Captain Caleb B. Senn, Regional Coordinator.

Or maybe, despite all the visibility and publicity it receives every holiday season, most people don't really have a clear idea of what the Salvation Army is all about.
