KettleRED KETTLES CAMPAIGN FALLS SHORT!

Donations still accepted through Online Red Kettles until January 31st

CONNECTICUT/RHODE ISLAND – The holidays have come and gone and The Salvation Army’s Southern New England Division is thankful for all of the support it received during the holiday season and continues to get year-round. Unfortunately, the division is approximately 3% behind this year’s Red Kettle Campaign goal.

However, just because the Red Kettle Campaign has ended outside your local stores, it continues online via http://www.onlineredkettle.org/ through the end of January. There are several Online Red Kettles tied to the division, which can be accessed through the following links: Greater Hartford Area Services, Hartford Citadel, Hartford Temple Youth Ministry, Middletown Corps (CT), Newport Corps, Pawtucket Corps, Stamford Corps, and more. Alternatively, there is also the option to give to a specific service area through the general Online Red Kettle website if one of the above kettles is not of interest to you.

All kettle donations are used to support programs of The Salvation Army year-round. Funds raised support programs like, after school programs for at risk youth, senior citizens and veteran’s activities, food pantries, and seasonal events like toys and gifts and Christmas meal programs. The Online Red Kettle campaign will remain active until January 31, 2013.

In commenting on this current situation, Major Dave Champlin, Divisional Commander, said, “It is never too late to donate to The Salvation Army so that we can meet needs year-round. With demand increasing at an alarming rate, it is through the kindness of our supporters, such as making a donation through an Online Red Kettle, which allows us to help individuals and families in their times of need.”
