Nanaimo Salvation Army says man trying to dupe people in door-to-door scam

Salvation Army provides Christmas gifts for hundreds of Knoxville families

The owners of a doughnut shop in Maine, Holy Donut, had to publicly apologize for asking The Salvation Army to help them find a family in need this Christmas after they were attacked online earlier this month.

Presbyterian Support Otago communications and marketing manager Warren Rosser said even some working-class families' incomes were not enough to sustain them. "We're always here to meet the community's needs". "Often times, people get irritated about all the commercialization of this time of year".

Individuals and groups can volunteer for the Red Kettle Campaign. That is a daunting number, but it will allow us to provide far more than food and shelter to those in need in our community.

Jones hopes her charitable gift motivates other people to do the same when they see the red kettles and hear the sound of Salvation Army bells.

Donations will be accepted Saturday from 8am-5pm and again on Monday from 8am-5pm at the Salvation Army parking lot on Park Avenue in Meadville. "We thought this year was going to be a little better".




The local Kinsmen Club has been supporting the cause for more than 20 years now and donated $5,000 this year to help the cause. He also takes him to hospitals to help cheer up patients.

The shop's Facebook page was littered with hundreds of comments, including many that accused The Salvation Army of discrimination, after it posted about the fundraiser.

This year, more than 900 families registered for the program. Bert Sharp with the Salvation Army.

Vietnam veteran Marshall Ewing has been volunteering for almost 30 years, and he says each year is even more fulfilling than the last.
