DONORS HELP THE SALVATION ARMY’S 122ND RED KETTLE CAMPAIGN SET NEW FUNDRAISING RECORD DESPITE ECONOMIC WOES
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The generosity of donors in America once again helped The Salvation Army reach a new record through its 2012 Red Kettle Campaign – $148.7 million collected through nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars (and the occasional diamond ring or gold tooth). During the 122nd annual campaign, which ran from November 22nd through Christmas Eve, The Salvation Army incorporated concerts, contests, and celebrities in a national effort to raise donations to help people through these harsh economic conditions. With red kettles hosted at retailers nationwide, donations to the Army support families and individuals in need in the communities in which the donations are raised year-round. Of this total, in the Southern New England Division, the Army raised $2,064,760.85, thanks to the generosity of those within both Connecticut and Rhode Island.
