Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

"People come in for help nearly every day".

Major Greg Voeller from Salvation Army of Dane County kicked off the Red Kettle Campaign at Pick'n Save West, 2538 Ironwood Dr., on Friday Nov. 10, 2017. "The Salvation Army acts as intermediaries with the gifts that we receive and are able to hand out to other people, with the food that we receive that we hand out to other people and then certainly the monetary donations it takes to run the operations here", said Marquette County Salvation Army Captain Doug Winters.

The Guam Territorial Band will play Christmas favorites at the Red Kettle Kickoff, which also will feature the Christmas lighting event of the Agana Shopping Center, according to a news release.

The Salvation Army provides many programs which support local individuals, including funding bills during tough times for families.

Rowland is in charge of organizing the effort in 17 MI counties, including Huron.

The Salvation Army's red kettles outside of stores, with accompanying bell ringers, are an annual marker of the holiday season.

"It's about five shifts per day per location", Sadowy said. "We are always looking".

Those who want more information on local opportunities should call the Marysville/Tulalip Salvation Army at 360-926-2228. The goal was raised slightly from last year's overall collection of just under $16,000.

"When I'm at the kettle and people say "I'm so sorry I've only got a little bit of change", I always say 'If everybody felt that way and only gave a little bit of change, it would be fantastic at how much money we could raise, ' " Roche said.
