The Salvation Army Kingston needs more volunteers for annual Kettle Campaign

The Salvation Army Guam Corps will hold its Red Kettle Kickoff at 5 p.m. November 24 at the Agana Shopping Center. Organizers say this is a great opportunity to make a difference in someone's life. Holiday shoppers will be asked for donations starting the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve.

"When I was young, really small, I came from a dysfunctional and poor background, the one particular memory that I have that stands out in my mind is one Christmas", Roche said. When you're poor you don't always get the luxuries of [things like] candy.

Volunteers can sign up for ringing locations and times through the Mankato Salvation Army's website at www.salvationarmynorth.org/community/mankato/.

Money collected during the holiday season helps the charity fund its programs, including a food pantry that serves approximately 1,200 families a month, Meals on Wheels and a free after-school program.

All the money raised in red kettles in the Walla Walla Valley will stay here, she said.

The Salvation Army feeds the hungry, provides shelter and disaster relief and offers addiction recovery, domestic violence services and youth programs. Shifts are available for a couple of hours, or regularly throughout the season, depending on how much time volunteers have to give.

"We've sort of struggled over the years to find long-term volunteers that have worked to provide the assistance throughout the year", he said.
