The Lima Salvation Army needs volunteers

Tuesday's Kettle Klash saw 11 teams raise $63,069 - over $3,000 more than this year's goal of $60,000 and almost $6,000 more than last year's total. "We still have shifts available to be fill". "We have about 40% of shift left to fill so there's lot of opportunity left to get involved and help make a difference". Additionally, The Salvation Army served over one million hot meals statewide previous year.

"Granting Christmas wishes to children in need is an extremely rewarding initiative", said Denise Yamauchi, Managing Director for Kazi Restaurants of Hawai'i, Inc. They brought food, and they brought toys and they brought candy. "Now, I can't walk by a kettle without putting money in". "This season, every cent helps us turn the hope of those we serve into reality".

Each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas volunteers from several different organizations and churches in the area go out to local stores and ring bells, asking for donations to be placed in red buckets to help the hungry and poor in Bingham County and other counties in the area.


Over the four years, Burger King Hawai'i guests have donated more than $37,000 in support of the program.

Programs and services like the day drop in shelter, emergency food services, Community Choice Pantry as well as the after school program, and volunteer income tax clinic. So many of us have a lot. o many of us don't have very much.

"We always help between 400-500 at Christmas", said Sgt. -Maj. This year's goal is also $70,000.
