QC Salvation Army is behind in Red Kettle campaign

Red Kettle Donations Falling Behind in River Valley Red Kettle Donations Falling Behind in River Valley

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program connects caring residents with less fortunate neighbors to make sure every kid has a Merry Christmas.

The organization also is gearing up for its Angel Tree distribution of food baskets and toys Wednesday and Thursday. I think we exceeded that.

That's why the Salvation Army has experimented with credit card machines on their kettle stands in other states, but it's not the most cost effective choice in this area, because each device costs about $700.

"These toys will help fill those angels who are missing or were not returned", said Maj.

Last year, The Salvation Army helped over 1.9 million people. "When we started, we were able to put the toys in little barrels".


All funds that are raised in Merrill during the kettle campaign stay in Merrill and are distributed through St. Vincent de Paul. Jeff Daniel, of the Tupelo Salvation Army. They are asked to work two-hour shifts.

However, more people are still needed to continue monitoring the kettles, with shifts available during the crucial final week.

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

If you would like to volunteer to help shop for a child in need, representatives will interview potential volunteers between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.at Target.
