York Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

To sign-up, contact Julie Johnson at 319-327-2072 or Private Message her through the Buchanan County Salvation Army (formerly Buchanan County Red Kettle Ringers) on Facebook.

Major McGory has witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of people needing assistance over the years.

"It's an honour to make the first donation to the Christmas Kettle Campaign", he said. "We are noticing we have to supplement a lot of the food by making large purchases, which cuts back on a lot of programs and services that we could be offering in the community".

The shifts don't require much more than just watching the kettles and saying hello to passersby, and all the setup and takedown is taken care of. "This season the goal is to serve 986 children and seniors who will otherwise have nothing for Christmas", said Joel Rogers of the Salvation Army.

Bell ringing at the Independence Fareway consists of hour-long blocks that are available 8 a.m.to 8 p.m., Monday - Saturday through at least Christmas.

Google Maps gets makeover with new colors and icons
With this new design, Google Maps will be even further ahead of Apple in terms of data, features and usability. Locations such as cafes, churches, museums, and hospitals will have their own individual color and icon.

For information, call (304) 737-0071 or (304) 748-4310. Several hundred people watched the program which included The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Drive.

Gifts need to be new and unused, and unwrapped when they're dropped off.

Many churches, school groups and nonpublic workplaces have agreed to help with the wishes.

Morton added volunteers aren't needed only during the holiday season. "Throughout the year, the Salvation Army provides compassionate services to people living in Prince Edward County". Those aided by the Salvation Army receive vouchers to shop in the store at no cost.
