QC Salvation Army is behind in Red Kettle campaign

The donor who left the huge check in a kettle at a south metro Cub Foods has asked to remain unnamed

With only five days to go, the annual Red Kettle Campaign is almost $30,000 shy of the $125,000 goal. "We're not, like, way off the chart, but we're doing well".

"We have them padlocked and it's hard to count on or to think somebody would actually grab the entire kettle and stand and everything", he said. "It's great that we've got such support from individuals and companies". "Without them, we wouldn't have a Red Kettle Campaign!" But Parker said there's no way to know how much money was inside.

On Dec. 7, Laconia police responded to Main Street for a report of theft of money from the Salvation Army holiday collection bucket.

The Wheeling Salvation Army crossed Ohio County off their list for the Angel Tree, presenting the families with their gifts. Captain Benny Carringer of the Wheeling Salvation Army says he used to be a recipient of Angel Tree gifts, and now he's honored to be apart of such an fantastic process. Typical requests are clothing for youths and small toys.

"These are families that are in need", he said.

Dispatchers said they didn't alert patrol officers or commanders because they couldn't confirm it came from their jurisdiction. The seven-year investigation into his death has been one of the Memphis Police Department's most high-profile unsolved cases.

"It went well", he said.

A few months ago, the Goldspink family made the heart-breaking decision to turn their focus this year to more pressing family issues. "Think about the work the Salvation Army is trying to do in our community by trying to do the most good for those in the most need".

"It's a blessing to have the Salvation Army in my life right now", said Angel Tree recipient Pansy Saunders. To complete the week of the Red Kettle Drive, the officials with the organization's Athens unit needs additional volunteers to help ring the bell at Brookshire's and Walmart.

And if you don't even have to come across a kettle to give. So, McFee started a similar effort in San Francisco, with a pot and a sign reading, "Keep the Pot Boiling".

On Christmas Day, The Salvation Army is inviting the public to gather to celebrate the hope and joy of Christmas.
