Online Red Kettle – There is Still Time

ORK Post

Christmas is just around the corner and another year is coming to an end. We have accomplished so much this year.  We have touched the lives of hundreds or thousands of people – feeding families who are hungry, serving people affected by tornados or natural disasters, and helping families stay in their homes to name a few. We are able to do this because of your help.

In fact, seventy percent of the money received during the Red Kettle Campaign supports your neighbors – and all of that stays in the community in which it was received, like ours. The Salvation Army is ranked as one of the most efficient non-profit organizations in the world; approximately 87 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to programs and services.  It is your donations that allow us to Do the Most Good in your neighborhood.

So, we ask you – this Christmas to partner with us and Do the Most Good together. Help us make the most change in your communities. Register to volunteer or donate to this Salvation Army community by clicking here.

Thank you for your generosity and transforming the lives of those in your community.

Merry Christmas!
