Humbug! Thief steals Salvation Army kettle of cash, cops say

Humbug! Thief steals Salvation Army kettle of cash, cops say

It's the last big drive for the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Drive.

But even though demand is high, Madsen says donations to the Salvation Army are actually down by about 15 percent. Will we be able to meet the year-round needs of the underserved in our neighborhoods?

"It's a very rough time of the year for us".

Groups are always welcome to volunteer, Gonzalez said, and members can take turns manning the kettle. The Salvation Army has a national program called The Angel Tree, which is created to help these struggling children receive items on their wishlist. "We also have an extra stand for anyone who may want to go downtown and ring".

The Salvation Army says it's all due to their donors and volunteers.

Poverty remains prevalent across metro Detroit. "It's not the only one, but it's the one we support, and to help everyone we can".




The shop's Facebook page was littered with hundreds of comments, including many that accused The Salvation Army of discrimination, after it posted about the fundraiser.

While many are preparing to finish up for the year and begin holidays, Dunedin's social service agencies are just getting started.

We further help families sustain positive momentum through our after school and youth programs as well as life-changing youth camps at.

For the past two days inside the crowded Salvation Army Church hall volunteers have been busy preparing for next week's Christmas hamper distribution.

She said this year's goal is $450,000. Gifts were purchased and brought back to the Credit Union where the Salvation Army could then pick up and distribute. If you would like to experience first-hand, the great things we do, please visit one of our Corps Community Centers or visit our website at.
