Salvation Army offering new way for people to give this holiday season Lawton Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

Huron County will begin its campaign on Friday at the Bad Axe Wal-Mart, and it will run through December 22.

Through this fundraiser in November and December, The Salvation Army helps almost 30 million people each year, according to Lindsey Lee with The Salvation Army Northwest Division.

"Many families are still finding it almost impossible to stay afloat financially, and we've seen it firsthand in the increasing number of New Jersey residents who come to us for help", says Major Ivan K. Rock, State Commander of The Salvation Army in New Jersey. He said being able to fill a day with one particular group makes things a lot easier.

"One Christmas Eve, when we didn't have anything, The Salvation Army came and brought food and toys and candy and I thought one day I have to do something", said Roche.

"I know when I stand by the kettle there's going to be a family out there that is going to benefit for the two hours I stood by that kettle just like I benefited", said Roche.

Still, the Salvation Army is hoping to reach its Huron County goal this season of $18,000. "This season, every cent helps us turn the hope of those we serve into reality".

Last year, 708,884 individuals in New Jersey received assistance from The Salvation Army, which included holiday and seasonal assistance, food pantry, soup kitchens, after-school programs, emergency shelter and much more.

"We always help between 400-500 at Christmas", said Sgt. -Maj.

"Christmas Kettles is our largest annual fundraiser and it directly supports Community and Family services, all of our programs and services that we have year round", Sadowy said.

"It is the biggest contributor to provide our funds that give direct assistance to community members", she said.
