Salvation Army Red Kettle and Angel Tree programs kick off!

Jerry Morrison with Mahaska County Salvation Army hopes to turn those pennies, nickels, quarters, and dollar bills into thirty-thousand dollars. According to PADD, it's an opportunity to give all year long by brightening someone's day and making a new friend in the process.

At age 80, Smith comes out of retirement each holiday season for the Salvation Army. "Some of the families have struggled so hard this past year".

Taking part is really simple. "It always helps to have local people ring the bells because people know them, and people are much more apt to put money in when they know somebody is ringing the bells, so pass the word along".

You take a tag off an Angel Tree, buy the gift the person requests, and return it to where you got the tag. David Cope, corps officer for The Salvation Army in Waynesville.

The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal launches on 20 November throughout New Zealand.
