Salvation Army Launches Kettle Campaign to help those in need year round

The Salvation Army Starts It's 'Red Kettle Campaign'

Other donations will be collected in red kettles by bell ringers at retail locations around North Platte.

Volunteers will now canvas the county, collecting money to help people in need. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, 150 to 160 volunteers will be needed to work the ten full time kettles located across the city. "We are noticing we have to supplement a lot of the food by making large purchases, which cuts back on a lot of programs and services that we could be offering in the community". Funding for the Salvation Army Cortland Center's First Annual Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway was provided by the Ralph R. Wilkins Foundation Inc.

Cpt. Deb Thompson of the Salvation Army feels it is a necessity to give a lending hand to those in need during the Holidays. There are many locations that are participating, so there will be plenty of options for days and times. Individuals and groups who raise the most money will be recognized at volunteer appreciation dinners in Weirton and Wellsburg next spring.

Another way to assist the Salvation Army is by helping to grant the Christmas wishes of local children in need.

Items for the wishes should be turned in to the Weirton or Wellsburg Salvation Army locations by December 11. "We would love to have, on every Friday and Saturday at least, all 22 kettles manned, or on Saturday and Sundays". "Throughout the year, the Salvation Army provides compassionate services to people living in Prince Edward County".
