The Salvation Army Sets Tree of Lights Goal at $1 Million

"The bell ringers do well, but I top it".

Salvation Army begins their annual.

The food bank receives a great amount of community support, he said, noting two recent donation campaigns, one from High River Co-op and the second from an RCMP officer's piano benefit concert.

The Windsor branch of the Salvation Army has increased its fundraising goal for this year's Christmas Kettle Campaign. He said the kettle campaign is a special time of year.

"There's still a big demand". After the gifts are purchased, they are returned to the Angel Tree location for processing and distribution by the Salvation Army.

"This is an important time for us", Romack said.

Sally Ann Public Relations Manager Shannon Wise encourages people in need to step forward. "We ask them just to greet people as they make donations and just be there to smile, accept donations and wish everyone a Merry Christmas". He's optimistic the campaign will be successful because of the generosity shown in past years by Cumberland County residents.

"Though this campaign is critical to meeting the need in the Christmas season and ensuring families have a wonderful holiday, it's also critical to meeting the needs of those same folks, an even vaster majority of folks through the year", Meisner said. "The people have been very generous and we depend on that support".

The iconic red kettles popped up Monday at convenience stores, Super One, the post office, Collin Street Bakery and other businesses. Foodland will also be holding a food drive in the next few weeks to support the Springhill food bank.

"Some people may want to do several shifts", he said.
