  • Ring in the new year with The Salvation Army

Money raised by bell ringers helps to fund the programs at the local Salvation Army in Murfreesboro.

State Reps.

Less than 24 hours after a Salina organization put out a plea for help because their biggest fundraising effort of the year was falling short, they received some great news.

They stood outside the store and asked shoppers to contribute money to the kettle.

Some of those who gathered outside the Salvation Army's headquarters for the annual hamper distribution.

Lt. Charles Smith with The Salvation Army says this year they are very low.

The Salvation Army had used a former vehicle dealership site on Peters Creek Parkway for years to sort donations and as its hub for its Christmas giveaway to children.

"This is one of the most generous communities I have ever seen", Whitaker said.

The family has since relocated to Sharpsburg, but the kindness and support of the Salvation Army was never forgotten. "There are many people and businesses who are contributing to the campaign". "We were caught in a bind, and they were helpful".

A trailer and heat tent will open every day from 8am to 5pm to take donations in the parking lot at 1087 Park Avenue in Meadville.

"The more that's donated to Waseca County, the more help we can offer later down the line", she said.

"We're going to pray", Morris said.

"I never thought I would get a lovely bike as one of the gifts", Salgado said and before she left, she shared one last thought. The Salvation Army is looking to fill two-hour shifts right up until 8 p.m. Christmas Eve, though Wheeler suggests giving coordinators a few days' notice when signing up. If any toys are not used this Christmas, they will be kept for next year.
