Volunteers needed as Salvation Army's Christmas kettle campaign set to begin

Major Anthony Le Drew of the Clarenville Salvation Army

"Out of concerns that people are moving towards a cashless society we've actually started a red kettle kick off event November 1st", explained Major Bob Lloyd with the Salvation Army. With more volunteers, more money can be raised, Ted Tressler said.Kettle-ringing shifts are typically four hours. We have stories of people who needed our services and have gone on to turn their lives around, and now give back to us. Funding for the Salvation Army Cortland Center's First Annual Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway was provided by the Ralph R. Wilkins Foundation Inc.

The primary way that The Salvation Army receives funding is through collection at kettles at Christmas time that are stationed in front of high-traffic area stores with volunteers ringing bells. Larry Ashcraft, with the Salvation Army.

He said it's a way of experiencing the spirit of giving that is at the heart of Christmas and costs participants nothing but a couple of hours of their time. It's the organization's most recognizable fundraising effort, and raises money for thousands of people who are struggling to make ends meet. Several hundred people watched the program which included The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Drive.

Rainy, windy start to weekend; sunny, cold ending
Winds will relax through the day but highs will only warm into the mid 50s this afternoon, about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. The outlook for the Thanksgiving holiday looks quiet and cool with daytime temperatures in the 50s on Thanksgiving Day .

The Salvation Army asks all gifts to be dropped off at Turtle Creek Mall or the Family Store on US 49 by December 15, 2017.

Many churches, school groups and nonpublic workplaces have agreed to help with the wishes. A friendly competition of bell ringing between Mayor Todd Barton and Commissioner John Frey will take place from 7 p.m.to 8 p.m. on November 25 during the Downtown Party Night festivities.
