  • Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle

The campaign is the major fundraiser for the Salvation Army, and thanks to helping hands, the overhead is low.

Cindy Flanagan, of the Concord Rotary, said ringing the bell is another way to give back to the community.

On Thursday, distribution hours will be from 9 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. Carrie Pollom said live music helped bring attention to the kettles at their previous postings with the Salvation Army and this entertainment was a lot of fun too, so they made a decision to recruit performers for the Coles and Cumberland campaign. Sponsored by the Salvation Army, this bell-ringing competition raised more than $5,000 previous year.

Pollom said the 2017 campaign has already featured Mattoon Middle School band students performing next to a kettle at County Market and the Charleston High School a capella chorus singing alongside a kettle at the Cross County Mall.

"It's even affecting the Angel Tree (donations)", she said. "It is a break from what we do and see - some of the worst things in our community - to see a lesson in humanity and humility", Seguin Police Kevin Kelso said.

The Marietta Times Tava Douglas, of Marietta, a bell ringer for 20 years, takes donations outside the Marietta Walmart on Thursday. Other organisations such as the Learning Centre and National Disabilities Unit, as well as people who supported the Salvation Army, also received donations.

"We use the Salvation Army quite frequently", Kelso said.

In 2015, five coins were dropped off at two different Red Kettle locations in Pompano Beach.

The Christmas Red Kettle campaign in Meadville is also ongoing and is now only at 37 percent of its goal and running slightly behind last year's totals as of last week, according to officials.

Red kettles are located at 21 merchant sites around the community through December 23.

"When you give to the salvation army red kettle in Lafayette, you're giving directly to the Salvation Army of Lafayette".
