Salvation Army kettle stolen from front of supermarket

Salvation Army members are scheduled to begin distributing the gifts next week. "We are finding we are having to reach more into the individual volunteers".

Every keiki deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. While The Salvation Army is excited for this good start, it said it is still anxious that at this current rate of giving, it will fall short of its $108,000 kettle goal for the year.

All winter long, the Salvation Army goes to places where people in need gather. Donors can select one or more tags from the Angel Tree and purchase appropriate gifts for keiki or senior described on the tags.

Declining memberships in some service and social clubs are also having an impact on the availability of volunteers. The final day to drop off gifts at CPB branches is December 15. The money raised through the annual Red Kettle Campaign is used by The Salvation Army throughout the year in several ways, including rent for families facing evictions, utility payments for families with a shut-off notice, and with programs such as SHARE Summer Day Camp.

Another generous donor recently left more than loose change in a Salvation Army red kettle in downtown Boston. Red Kettle donations support community-based programs in the area of each island where each donation is made.
