Local lawmakers raise money for Salvation Army

The Salvation Army in Ottawa says it's not even one-third of the way toward its $700,000 Kettle Capaign goal this year

Money that you put in the kettles here in Martinsville and Henry County stays here to fund Salvation Army programs year-round.

By 11 a.m., fewer than 20 bicycles remained and very few bags of toys and food.

"We try to pack $150 worth of toys for each child in the family", said Duquette.

In fact, with only nine days left in the holiday campaign, they need $17,000 to reach their goal.

Literally hundreds of thousands of Western Pennsylvanians are assisted by The Salvation Army each year during times of crisis.

For more than ten years, Anna Grayson has spent her holidays ringing this bell for The Salvation Army.

Officials say more than 400 families need help this year, the event goes until Friday.

"We know the people of Whitehorse are generous and supportive of their community, and we hope donations pick up the closer we get to Christmas".

7-year-old Hudson Morley from Whalen Corners came to London with his 3-year-old brother Carter to donate toys and money from their piggybanks.

Red kettles will be out on Fridays and Saturdays for the next two weekends. We still have three others where we're going to give out another 413 care packages.

"If they want to dress up or play Christmas music, I encourage that", she said. In the past, the Salvation Army would go through the process of buying and packing a ham, turkey, potatoes and all of the fixings needed for a Christmas dinner and hand out hampers.

Perhaps the huge success of WCAP's annual Salvation Army Radiothon has created the impression that all of the local Army's fundraising needs have been met.

It was a small fire that caused a big problem at the Salvation Army building in Meadville and now the race is on to save Christmas for some 200 families.

The annual cram the cruiser fundraiser for the Houston Salvation Army Christmas hampers was on December 2, 2017 in front of the recently reopened grocery store, Buy-Low Foods.
