Christmas Kettle Campaign issues urgent plea

Elmira Salvation Army Red Kettle donations down this holiday season

It is the season of giving, and one Oklahoman gave a little bit more than expected this Christmas.

In 2015, a man kicked, punched, and threw a donation bucket at a blind Salvation Army bell ringer in Greenburgh, New York, outside a Smashburger.

The nonprofit is now facing a $220,000 shortfall in kettle donations as well as fewer volunteers.

"For me, it really started in 2005 when I went down to Louisiana during the Hurricane Katrina clean-up effort", she said.

"The Salvation Army needs your help in achieving this goal so that we may continue to provide hope to those in need within our community, especially during the winter months", reads the release.

The Salvation Army's Christmas Family Feast is on Christmas Day.

"We want to thank all the organizations that helped us this year". Now, Regamey said three-quarters of its volunteer shifts have been covered for the final days. "The money will help us find a new vehicle to expand the number of kids involved".

Last year, The Salvation Army provided over 2.4 million meals and helped almost half a million MA residents in need.

"With so many individuals and families in need, it is essential that we meet our Red Kettle Campaign goal this year", said Major David B. Davis, Massachusetts Divisional Commander.

"The Rotary clubs of Burlington will be hosting most of our kettle locations on Saturday to hopefully give us a push over the top".
