Donations Down for The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign

The Salvation Army of Livingston County each Christmas season places their red kettles at stores all over Livingston County. The Salvation Army Bell Ringers collect donations to support its year round service programs.

Donations for the campaign are down this year , farther down than they have been in recent years.  As of Wednesday, December 14, 2016, The Salvation Army of Livingston County is more than $8600 behind of where it was during the campaign at this point last year.

Major Prezza Morrison of the Livingston County Salvation Army says she has faith in this generous community that responds when it is aware of what is needed. “Livingston County has a track record of helping one another out,” says Major Morrison “The needs of those we serve is greater than ever and funds collected at Christmas will help meet the need throughout the year.  I would encourage those who can give to give generously.”

The Red Kettle Campaign will run through Saturday, December 24, 2016 with donations toward the Christmas goal still being accepted through January. The Salvation Army’s 2016 goal is $380,000 which will be raised by the Red Kettles located outside of local businesses, funds sent in the mail or given online.  The following locations are hosting a kettle this season: Walmart (Howell & Fowlerville), Kroger (Howell, Hartland, Brighton & Hamburg), VG’s (Howell & Brighton), Busch’s, Walgreens (Howell, Hartland & Brighton), TJ Maxx, JCPenney, Jonna’s Market and Big Lots.
