Salvation Army nears end of campaign, still needs help

Salvation Army nears end of campaign, still needs help”

"Now, as President of the United States, it is my tremendous honor to finally wish America and the world, a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!" Plus, those donations go to support their other programs throughout the year, including utility assistance, disaster relief and food programs.

This year almost 600 hundred children were sponsored throughout the Mid-Ohio Valley and will be full of excitement on Christmas day.

The Great Plains Health Foundation presented a $2,700 donation to the local Salvation Army chapter Thursday morning. She's a member of the church here, and when she volunteers, she raises money for the youth group.

And you can bet that bell will keep on ringing. "The money will help us find a new vehicle to expand the number of kids involved". They will travel together on December 26 to Los Angeles, where they will be met at the airport by a Tournament of Roses representative, Salvation Army Maj.

Across the parking lot, Lahoma Williams expressed how important it was to him to be able to help those in need, like the sick and homeless.

"It is literally a community effort for the community", said Winter adding, "So every part and every stage we work together for this one special day and the town gets to have this awesome time".

He said 1,500 meal boxes will be handed out over the Christmas holidays.

The rare coin gives a much-needed boost to The Salvation Army kettle donations, which are down almost $200,000 from what they were this time past year, according the charity.

Because Kmart was a hot spot for donations, Hughes said the bell-ringers started a week early this year to try and make up for the loss. This year she has rung the bells in everything from an overcoat and scarf to just a T-shirt.
