Salvation Army: All but 6 angels have been sponsored

Donations to the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign helps run programs year round.

"We have given them clothing, winter jackets, they also receive a food box with a turkey for their own Christmas dinner", Salvation Army Captain Nicole Parker says. Will we be able to meet the year-round needs of the underserved in our neighborhoods?

"But again 150 to 200 is a very considerable gap and it's certainly something we want to mend", Repass said.

The Red Kettle Campaign is one of the longest-running and most recognizable fundraising efforts in the world.

"There's a lot of wonderful people of all demographics and all ages coming out and volunteers and the volunteers are a cross section of society", said Oakes.

Jones hopes her charitable gift motivates other people to do the same when they see the red kettles and hear the sound of Salvation Army bells.

"Now we're asking our community to help us reach our goal financially".

In addition to the red kettles, the public can make donations online to either the eastern or western divisions or by texting KETTLE to 41444.

We further help families sustain positive momentum through our after school and youth programs as well as life-changing youth camps at. On Monday, five locations did not have someone to provide the familiar sound of the holiday season.

For the past two days inside the crowded Salvation Army Church hall volunteers have been busy preparing for next week's Christmas hamper distribution.

Vietnam veteran Marshall Ewing has been volunteering for almost 30 years, and he says each year is even more fulfilling than the last. "People have suggested that we "pretend" not to know of The Salvation Army's reputation".
