Salvation Army kicks off its Angel Tree campaign

Salvation Army kicks off its Angel Tree campaign”

The group entertained the crowd of a few dozen by singing Christmas carols to help kick off the Salvation Army of Plattsburgh's annual Red Kettle Campaign.

Starting on November 10th, prepare for the ringing bells and red kettles throughout the First Coast. The Bell Ringing campaign starts Friday, and Major Prezza Morrison says the Howell Area Fire Department will have firefighters out on volunteer duty ringing the bell at several locations in Howell. Other locations will be added after Thanksgiving.

This year, the Hancock Salvation Army's goal is $65,000, Schweigert said. "Maybe it would be the food pantry and we do over 4,000 meals a month in our food pantry and 4,000 meals a month in our soup kitchen". Bryant said a year ago the charity raised $108,000.

"The best thing about this is that all the money raised is spent here", he said.

Donations are being accepted at the Red Kettles from now until Christmas.

The tree will stand in the mall's center court with care - in the hope that St. Nicks soon will be there to pluck all of the names by December 8.

"A lot of us sometimes take Christmas for granted", Ragner said.

The Angel Tree campaign provides Christmas presents for children of low-income families.

To learn how to volunteer or donate, contact Bryant at 334-792-1911.
