Salvation Army: All but 6 angels have been sponsored

Salvation Army: All but 6 angels have been sponsored

The Salvation Army says it's all due to their donors and volunteers.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman who walked off with a Salvation Army fundraising kettle.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

Major Glen Madsen is with the Salvation Army in Concord.

The Salvation Army red kettle program is only 52% to its Christmas goal of raising $750,000.

Kimberly George at the Chattanooga Salvation Army says the Red Kettle money is $15,000 behind past year.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said.

Corps Officer David Repass said more than 2,000 children are asking to be sponsored as an angel this Christmas season and that equals a total 460 families in Horry County, but he said that number may not be met if the angels aren't picked up.

"There's a lot of wonderful people of all demographics and all ages coming out and volunteers and the volunteers are a cross section of society", said Oakes.

"We are grateful for this additional support from Walmart Canada on top of hosting kettles at each of their stores in Thunder Bay. We also have an extra stand for anyone who may want to go downtown and ring".

This year, the Salvation Army says it expects to provide gifts to over 8,000 kids in Hampton Roads.

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. He handed down an antique bell that's more than 50 years old.

"This afternoon our hearts were broken when over 150 angels were returned to us unsponsored", states a post by the Salvation Army of Horry County.

Shopping carts - sometimes two carts - loaded with toys and bicycles rolled out the door on distribution day for the Salvation Army's annual Angel Tree program.

14, the kettle drive has yielded $150,634 with only eight days left to meet this year's goal of $250,000.
