The Salvation Army is making a plea for donations, specifically for turkeys. We are excited that our Red Kettles are out in the community raising much-needed funds to help those in need.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

This year's Angel Tree program distributed gifts, including 225 new bicycles, to 859 children from 340 area families, said Capt. Philip Canning, co-area Salvation Army commander with his wife, Capt. Elaine Canning. "We're always here to meet the community's needs".

"There's a lot of wonderful people of all demographics and all ages coming out and volunteers and the volunteers are a cross section of society", said Oakes. And if you are an individual or family, know that we will put your donations to good use with.87 cents of every dollar going directly to provide assistance. "It's not the only one, but it's the one we support, and to help everyone we can". These next couple of weeks are our last days of kettles at storefronts, so this time of year is crucial.

Higgins said he also takes Abner to hospitals to help cheer up patients with a little animal therapy. He hopes the Salvation Army can ease the burden for as many people as possible.

Captain Dawne Anderson of the Nanaimo Salvation Army told NanaimoNewsNOW a coworker reported someone door-knocking in Harewood Friday, claiming to be raising money for the local Salvation Army.

"We are so thankful for our volunteers", Envoy Brad Harris of the Pottsville Salvation Army said.

"Be creative, play an instrument, play songs, sing songs dress up your pet or your kids", she said.

People's Credit Union extends their utmost gratitude to everyone who donated to a deserving child this holiday season.
