Salvation Army Red Kettle and Angel Tree programs kick off!

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.

More than 10,000 requests for assistance were received between July and September this year - and eight per cent increase on the same period last year.

The requested gifts are typically quite small. "I foresee it to be a very successful and attractive campaign".

Even if you can't shop for a present, you can still participate.

The gifts must be returned on December 11.

"The Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army's biggest campaign drive to collect donations in order to help support services throughout the year", explained Lt. Donna Thammavongsa with the Wausau Salvation Army.
