Salvation Army kicks off annual Christmas Campaign in Walworth County
WALWORTH COUNTY The Salvation Army in Walworth County launched its annual Christmas Campaign---including its visible red kettles—to raise funds to help people who continue to struggle across the area.
This year’s campaign theme is “Share Your Blessings. Be Blessed.”
Locally, The Salvation Army in Walworth County hopes to raise $65,000 to help sustain the vital programs and services that help needy people in their daily struggle for survival.
“Many families are still finding it very hard to stay afloat, and we’ve seen it firsthand in the numbers of people coming to us for help,” said Angela Swinehart, Field Representative. “It’s especially hard during the holiday season, when so many of our neighbors don’t know how they’ll have the means to provide for their families. That’s why The Salvation Army looks to our community for their generosity: so we can show that same compassion and kindness to the less fortunate.”
This holiday season is expected to be one of the busiest yet. Salvation Army officials stress that any contribution will help — and donations of time are accepted as gratefully as donations of money.
“Reaching out to those in need by volunteering to ring bells is a wonderful way to connect with the community, to give back, to share blessings, and to be blessed in return,” said Swinehart. To volunteer this Christmas season, contact Angela at (920) 980-7938.
