Salvation Army Delivers Hundreds Of Christmas Hampers

"We always trust that God will come through to provide what is needed even when things seem like we won't be able to meet our budget as they do this year".

"It's very crucial to have the money raised this time of year because it doesn't just affect our Christmas work, it also affects the work we do all year round".

"The Kettle Drive is our largest fundraiser of the year - it's our annual fund drive, so it helps us cover our seasonal expenses as well as help us with our overhead for operations", Hughes said.

The local nonprofit group, which covers Randolph, Taylor and Barbour counties, will continue collecting money until 7 p.m. Saturday at Walmart locations as well as area grocers - including six sites in Randolph County, one site in Philippi and three sites throughout Taylor County. Now, Regamey said three-quarters of its volunteer shifts have been covered for the final days.

Local Salvation Army officials are saying MA is shy of $1 million dollars away from meeting their statewide fundraising goal.




"It's not going to be like what it's been in years prior because there's so much online purchases", Hughes said.

Bell ringers like Sean Gimenez are used to seeing plenty of cash and coins dropped into the kettle during the holiday season.

"They don't ask for themselves, but to give to others", O'Mara said.
