The Salvation Army Christmas Fundraising Season is in Full Swing!
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle and Christmas season here in Livingston County is in full swing. The joyful sounds of bells can be heard by The Salvation Army Bell Ringers as they greet shoppers at over 17 locations around Livingston County.
As the weeks to the Christmas count down begins this December so does the countdown of The Salvation Army’s largest fund raiser, The Red Kettle and Christmas Season!
To date, December 6, 2016, The Salvation Army has raised $152668.62 which is 40% of their overall goal of $380,000. With only 3 1/2 weeks remaining for bell ringing The Salvation Army is asking the community to help reach our goal.
There are three ways to help:
1) We are still in need of families or organization to volunteer to man a Kettle for two hours or more.
2) Financial donation can be contributed in one of the kettles, dropped at the corps community building (503 Lake Street, Howell) or place them in the mail
3) Donations can be made online www.SalvationArmyLivingston.org
“As we draw closer to Christmas and experience the spirit of it we hope people will realize that some of our neighbors, friends, and strangers may not have the same opportunity to feel that Spirit without our help.” says Major Prezza Morrison “We can give them hope that the people of Livingston County do care and want to give them a Christmas to remember.”
Those wanting to bell ring can sign up online at www.registertoring.com | Donations can be mailed directly to P.O. Box 647 , Howell MI 48844 or dropped off at 503 Lake Street, Howell 48844
