All the donations raised in the kettle campaign stay local and are used for the Christmas Assistance Program, along with other programs throughout the year. David Cope, corps officer for The Salvation Army of Waynesville.
The Salvation Army of Waynesville is kicking-off the annual Red Kettle Campaign on November 17. However the kettle funds are not just for Christmas but all year-long.
The 2017 Red Kettle campaign goal is $84,000.
Leslie Johnson, program coordinator at the Mankato Salvation Army, said groups interested in volunteering for a whole day would be particularly helpful.
"Granting Christmas wishes to children in need is an extremely rewarding initiative", said Denise Yamauchi, Managing Director for Kazi Restaurants of Hawai'i, Inc. "This season, every cent helps us turn the hope of those we serve into reality".
"It basically supports our whole work in The Salvation Army during the year", said Maj.
"When I'm at the kettle and people say "I'm so sorry I've only got a little bit of change", I always say 'If everybody felt that way and only gave a little bit of change, it would be unbelievable at how much money we could raise, ' " Roche said. It's 365 days a year.
The Salvation Army is also hosting a Thanksgiving Day Community Meal on November 23 from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m.at the Salvation Army Chesapeake Energy Center of Hope, located at 1001 N. Pennsylvania Ave.
Last year, the campaign was able to exceed its goal, and both Sadowy and Roche are hoping to see the same this year.
