Salvation Army seeks donations, bell ringer volunteers

Volunteers keep the Salvation Army kettle campaign vital

The Salvation Army of Manitowoc County reported Monday the red kettle campaign is below its goal for the season.

"I think the biggest reason donations are down this year is partly because there was so much activity earlier this year with the hurricanes". "The campaign goal was increased this year to make up for funding cuts and increased needs".

Meery said previous year they raised about $23,000 through the campaign but didn't reach their goal of $27,000.

"I had a roofing accident in the '70s and they provided my family with toys for the kids and a holiday dinner", Milks said. Eight of the 17 large Salvation Army red kettles have been empty at the end of a collection day. He said if the goal is not met all regular operations would continue, but at a diminished capacity. The Salvation Army began in St. Joseph in 1886 and today operates a range of services targeted at people in need of life's essentials - food, clothing and shelter.

Applications are available at the Salvation Army Community Center. "We appreciate the folks at Kroger hosting the Red Kettle, and we are so grateful for the giving hearts of the people in our community".

There are 17 Red Kettle locations set up around Garland County this year.

Money raised by the bell ringers helps to fund programs that help homeless get back on their feet, stay sober and become successful individuals.

Aside from monetary donations, the Salvation Army is also looking for bell ringers through December 23.

"We're run by volunteers", she said. "The Salvation Army could not have made it this far without everyone's generosity", said Lt. Samantha Lockard.

This year they were unable to set up Red Kettle locations in Clark and Montgomery counties due to a lack of volunteers, but there are plans to branch out next year. He said most of the donations come as dollar bills and change.
