Gold coins found in Salvation Army holiday kettle in Florida

Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle Ottawa charities seeing donations dwindle this Christmas

The programs and services provided, not only at Christmas but throughout the year, and funded in large part by the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign.

The Pekin-area is in the most need of volunteers to help raise its goal of $200,000.

After a hallmark Kettle Campaign past year, $30,000+ was raised, Kristensen says funds were used during the Christmas season and stretched into 2017 to help feed the less fortunate from the Rossland Avenue pantry.

A young boy grabbed the kettle being watched by Todd Copper, who has been collecting money for the Salvation Army for 21 years despite having cerebral palsy and manning his post from a wheelchair.

The Salvation Army in Chickasaw County has raised over $20,000 from the Kettle Campaign in the last two years.

"Sometimes we're just not able to help as many people as we did the previous year", said Lt. Charles.

"The more that's donated to Waseca County, the more help we can offer later down the line", she said. Developed with the Royal Bank of Canada, the Salvation Army Kettle App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Salvation Army served over 200 meals in Altus at the 7th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner and anticipate serving just as many meals at the Christmas Dinner in Hollis coming up on December 21.

Canfield is Chandler's top bell ringer with a total donation amount of $31,000. The annual Christmas dinner will be held on Tuesday and the Salvation Army expects to feed 300 people.

All kettles require a volunteer to accept donations, and without enough volunteers, fundraising efforts will continue to fall. And for every dollar donated to the Salvation Army, 82 cents go to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.

The Salvation Army still has about 500 Angel Tags to collect but the need doesn't stop there.
