Salvation Army receives two more gold bars in SE Portland donation kettles

Older people

After a kettle campaign plea earlier this month, the Salvation Army of Chatham-Kent has closed the gap compared to where it was previous year. "It's great that we've got such support from individuals and companies". "Without them, we wouldn't have a Red Kettle Campaign!"

The Salvation Army of the Quad Cities is behind in their Red Kettle Campaign goal heading into the last week of fundraising. Have we become more like our wealthier brethren, greedy to hang on to our money and spend it on our own pleasures?

The Salvation Army was also the beneficiary of a large donation from the Chatham-Kent Police Service Toy Drive two weeks ago.

More than 600 bikes will be given out at the Salvation Army Christmas Bureau this year.

Celtic 69-game undefeated streak ends with resounding loss
Celtic's unbeaten domestic run came to an ignominious end at Tynecastle on Sunday afternoon. The team's last domestic defeat was against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on May 11, 2016.

She said her husband was pulling change from his pocket for the kettle when her ring went in too.

The theft will cost Chicago's Temple Community Corps almost $1,000 "in replacing the equipment and loss of donations", Shanna Schwarze with the Salvation Army Metropolitan Division said in a statement.

Supporters can host their own online kettle and encourage their friends, family, neighbours and co-workers to donate to The Salvation Army. Their goal for the Christmas season is at 35 percent. When you give to The Salvation Army, you are investing in the future of marginalized and overlooked people in your community.
