Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign Needs Volunteers

"We have about 40% of shift left to fill so there's lot of opportunity left to get involved and help make a difference".

The goal is to raise $310,000 with the funds staying local to support some of the Salvation Army's programs and services.

"I know when I stand by the kettle there's going to be a family out there that is going to benefit for the two hours I stood by that kettle just like I benefited", said Roche.

He soon had the money to see that the needy people were properly fed at Christmas, states the Salvation Army at salvationarmyusa.org.

The Salvation Army hopes more volunteers will sign up and help local families in a time of need the same way Roche was helped all those years ago.

"We're working on it at the moment so we don't have confirmed details just yet", Sadowy said.

Last year, the six-week Red Kettle Campaign raised $640,000 across the organization's six-county service area. "This season, every cent helps us turn the hope of those we serve into reality".
