$1.2 donation dropped into Salvation Army kettle in Janesville

Source KLTV staff

The Salina Salvation Army Kettle Campaign received a $10,000 donation on Thursday morning.

"This is a great way to maximize your donation" states Patty Lou Bryant, Communications Coordinator.

Since 2010, Walmart Canada and its customers have donated more than $22 million to The Salvation Army, through the Christmas Kettle Campaign.

With only days remaining in the 2017 Christmas Kettle Campaign, there is concern that a lack of donations could impact services provided by the charitable organization over the coming year.

This year's Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign started November 10 in Kankakee County, and at last count, had met 53 percent of its $241,000 goal. While The Salvation Army provides feeding and sheltering to address the foundational need, we provide much more than that.

The Red Kettles are still out and will be until December 23, but the campaign runs until the first or second week of January. "It's like a family", said Kathy Dillon.

A weight is being lifted off the shoulders of hundreds of East Tennessee families who may be worrying about affording Christmas gifts.

"It just makes it more fun", she said about caroling.

"Our theme this year is 'Fight for Good, ' so we are urging volunteers to sign up as bell ringers in their community this holiday season and to take advantage of this opportunity to fight for good", James said. Elvis and Kathy are thankful and they and their little girl Diamond are at the Salvation Army instead of sleeping in their vehicle, like they had been for a few nights.

The Salvation Army, an global movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs without discrimination.
