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

We sell clothes for next to nothing, and they would come and buy; they would prefer you to let them buy something than for you to keep giving them.

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

Donations taken by Salvation Army bell ringers in Washington County are down this year, with only eight days remaining for collection. "We were caught in a bind, and they were helpful".

"We can't use the building now, including the offices, because of the smell", James Brown said.

Last year, 55 per cent of the spots were filled at this time. Brian Burkett, corps commander of the Topeka Salvation Army, on Thursday morning.

"I'm at Walmart almost every day", said Michelle Jackson. "We purchased about $1,600 worth of toys for the Salvation Army, which will then be distributed to families in York County".

Added to that, the men said that while a monthly grant of $731,142.85 is provided by the Government, a lot more exists outside of that in terms of assistance to be given.

England Sevens beaten by Fiji in Cape Town
What made New Zealand's result the more remarkable is that they lost their tournament opening game 22-0 to the United States. The All Blacks Sevens side face Argentina in the final of the world series tournament in Cape Town this morning.

Starlene Collins, Manager of the Western Slope Food Bank said, she didn't expect the outcome to be as big as it was. A new blitz for the annual Red Kettle campaign is aimed at changing that.

"These funds are vital in order to maintain our local programs", said Kromm in a release.

"We've been very fortunate, so (it's) an opportunity to share", Dan Dunklee, of Concord, said.

"And I get enjoyment out of it because I'm doing a good deed for the people who don't have anything".

Local organizations around Mesa County are preparing to distribute to kids in need this holiday season --with Toys For Tots planning on delivering to every child who signed up to receive a donation.

If you're interested in being a bell ringer, there's still time.
