You can opt to have your donations picked up by truck in December. Donations help to provide emergency food services to families throughout the winter months.

 

 

THE SALVATION ARMY KETTLE CAMPAIGN

If you’re out doing your Christmas shopping you have probably seen the Bell Ringers supporting the Kettle Campaign. Any type of donation helps, whether it’s a $20 bill or the extra change in your pocket.
