Salvation Army kicks off Chirstmas Spirit Campaign

Salvation Army kicks off Chirstmas Spirit Campaign

The Salvation Army is accepting applications for holiday assistance from families of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties.

"We will start ringing the bell at the Chilhowie and Marion Food City stores on Wednesday, Nov. 22, and at the other locations on Friday, Nov. 24", Bishop said.

Taylor understands the need better than most. There are about 1,000 volunteers for this year's campaign, but at least 500 more are needed.

"Knowing that there are people in our community, with the means to generate excitement around the Joy of Giving, is a true blessing", says Aurora's Captain Rich Forney. They begin by providing over 325 meals for Thanksgiving.

"It's definitely different than any job I've had", said Chef Mike Block.

"We're very confident we will reach our goal based on the generosity of those in Genesee County in the past", he said.

A successful Red Kettle campaign means the organization can offer more in the way of programs, failure means less. As Chef Mike explained, without volunteers they wouldn't be able to accomplish their lofty daily goals.

Volunteers can serve for as little as an hour a week, work an entire shift or set up a weekly schedule.

"It was a life-changing event, everyone caring for everyone else", Conhain said of what The Salvation Army accomplished running the Solano Community College evacuation center.

On Tuesday, The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command will kickoff the Angel Tree and Red Kettle campaigns for the 2017 holiday season at 10 a.m.at Penn Square Mall.
