The Salvation Army “Rescue Christmas”
For the first time in 130 years, The Salvation Army is starting its annual holiday fundraising campaign early across the country in order to rescue Christmas. This holiday season, The Salvation Army expects to see a greater need for our services – more than any in recent history. Unemployment rates are expected to be 10%-11% and based on the increased service we’ve already provided this year due to COVID-19, we need resources to serve up to 155% more people with Christmas assistance. Our work this holiday season is going to be even more crucial to serving the most vulnerable – regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or gender orientation – in your community. Funds raised during the Kettle Season last year helped us make it possible to provide critical support for over 6000 people. Your donation at the Red Kettle will help make Christmas possible for families in need. Your donation supports Christmas family assistance, year-round assistance for low-income families and individuals, food pantries, youth programs, summer camps, character-building classes, homeless assistance, veterans’ programs, seniors assistance, case management, counseling.
