As the song says, Christmas is the most wonderful time of year. But, for many in our community, it’s simply not so. Many families struggle this time of year, dealing with loss, financial troubles, homelessness or hunger.
We have the power to provide for families in need in our community this holiday season. The iconic Salvation Army Red Kettles are visible throughout our city, at the doors of some of your favorite stores. While you are out and about, crossing off items on your list, please consider dropping in a dollar or two in the Kettle. When you do, you can expect change.
Money raised in the Red Kettles helps us make a difference throughout the year. It helps us give more people a hand up to put them back on their feet.
It may seem small, but each contribution provides meals for those in need, help for the homeless, mentors for at-risk youth, and toys for children at Christmas. Each contribution provides hope to those who need it most.
This year, when you hear the bell ringing and you see the Red Kettle, think about those in our community who need your support. You can be a part of a community that desires to speak hope into their lives. Drop in a dollar, and expect change!
