Salvation Army kettles raise $15400 so far

MIRACLE Central Highlands Mayor Kerry Hayes and Salvation Army Captain Lenore Whittaker after launching The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal

The Yuens, who've volunteered 14 hours to the campaign so far this year, have friends who have relied on the Salvation Army in times of need.

The Salvation Army in Terre Haute says more familes are asking for help.

The Salvation Army of Tallahassee is extending their Angel Tree program because they are in need of more donations this holiday season.

Last year's donations weren't as strong as the Salvation Army had hoped, but already the group believes there has been a small improvement this year.

Frederick said users were familiar with the former volunteer website at ringbells.org, which had been in place for 15 years. All the items collected will be brought to the Salvation Army's distribution site in the former NAPA building, 3292 Lapeer Road, Port Huron Township. Angels can be picked up at Patrick Henry Mall across from the Aeropostale store or local Walmarts.

When you walk into many Wal-Mart and other business locations you may find an "Angel Tree". "You live in this community, and you want to live in a nice community, and you wouldn't want your children to have a Christmas morning without presents", Gunnery Sergeant Andrew Smith said.

Tennessee fans react joyously after Jeremy Pruitt hire
Pruitt's teams put up impressive defensive numbers, often ranking in the top 10 in the country in points and yards per game. He started his collegiate career at Middle Tennessee before transferring to Alabama as a defensive back in 1995.

"When someone like you or me decides to give a thousand dollars to a charity, that's a major gift and we get to write it off on our taxes if we itemize and that's the stuff that's going to go away", Rich said.

"Dolly, a teacher there, messaged me and said 'Hey, how can we help?'" said Benner.

Fellow Salvation Army volunteer Terry Kettle has been a member for over 30 years and also pitches in to help out every year.

Keasbey, New Jersey-based ShopRite announced Tuesday that it will match that amount and donate another $100 to the Salvation Army.

"The money stays in this area", said Benner.

Some people said they give because they too have been through hard times.
