Does Traditional Bell-Ringing Still Work For Salvation Army?

The Salvation Army is making a plea for donations, specifically for turkeys.

For the past 28 years, Wicke has overseen the red kettle drive in Saginaw County.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

With only seven days left, the Salvation Army expects a significant decline in funds raised for services in Gadsden, Leon, and Wakulla counties.

Forbes notes that The Salvation Army's annual red kettle campaign fell slightly from $1.9 billion to $1.88 billion.

Kimberly George at the Chattanooga Salvation Army says the Red Kettle money is $15,000 behind a year ago.

The week of December 18 is the last week for the Salvation Army bell ringing collection effort that helps the organization care for people in need.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said.

A gem of a meteor shower
One interesting fact about this meteor shower: The meteors radiate from fairly high above the horizon early in the evening. There's the Everglades, of course, but be careful if you're out in the swamp after dark to see the streaks in the sky.

"We are solid for food", Wise said. He too was a bell ringer for more 40 years.

Since 2010, Walmart Canada and its customers have donated more than $22 million to The Salvation Army, through the Christmas Kettle Campaign. "Often times, people get irritated about all the commercialization of this time of year". The gift will be allocated to the Salvation Army location nearest to the person's billing ZIP code.

"What we are seeing is that people from all walks of life and backgrounds are seeking our help".

Higgins said he also takes Abner to hospitals to help cheer up patients with a little animal therapy.

Like an anxious parent, we will be working hard to collect donations until the very last minute of 2017 to make sure we are able to give hope to those in need.

The woman said since she got her ring back, she has not taken it off.

"We are so thankful for our volunteers", Envoy Brad Harris of the Pottsville Salvation Army said.
