State Representative Dave Yaccarino (R-87) joined The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Campaign on December 12 outside of Stop & Shop in North Haven.

According to salvationarmyusa.org, "The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is a holiday program created to raise in-kind gifts to assist families who are in crisis as a result of medical issues, unemployment, homelessness, medical issues or other hard circumstances and who otherwise wouldn't have the resources to celebrate Christmas". Contributions also allow The Salvation Army to continue operating its life-changing programs, such as substance abuse recovery, housing supports, job and skills training, and budgeting and education classes, which help people find a way out of poverty, permanently.

"There are a few people in the community who do have a long history with the Salvation Army, who have at some point been helped or who helped others and now have fond memories".

The Red Kettle Campaign is how each local service center makes their money for the following year. Previous year more than 3,000 hampers were given out.

"What a blessing is to have such a responsive community", said Capt. Steven Wilson of the Fond du Lac Salvation Army. "We couldn't do this without the generosity of our donors and volunteers". Donations can be made online at www.salvationarmyspringfield.org or by mail to The Salvation Army, PO Box 9685, Springfield, MO 65801.

"Community is coming to the Red Kettle rescue", Wilson noted. Developed with the Royal Bank of Canada, the "Salvation Army Kettle App" can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. During this press conference, The Salvation Army will provide the public with the results of the Campaign so far.

Bowers says the little you can give now can go a long way down the road.
