Salvation Army Christmas distribution now complete

Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle

The programs and services provided, not only at Christmas but throughout the year, and funded in large part by the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign.

By volunteering your church group, coworkers, family, friends and enemies for a day you could help us raise $200 to $500 dollars!

"I've got regulars that come here every year and they'll say, you're back again?"

The Salvation Army's Christmas Kettle campaign is one and a half weeks from the final collection day and although the city has been supportive, the total collected has fallen far behind previous year at this point.

We have provided direct link to give online.

"Without the kettle campaign, the Christmas program, along with (the food bank and Kate's Kitchen), we wouldn't be able to function", says Linda Radtke, manager for Trail Salvation Army Family Services.

Anyone wishing to volunteer can contact their local Salvation Army. Brian Burkett, corps commander of the Topeka Salvation Army, on Thursday morning.

But hundreds more might go without this year, because the need is outpacing donations.




We're not sure why the level of volunteers and donations have waned this season.

"We're right at $100,000", said Maj. "It makes me feel wonderful".

Canfield is Chandler's top bell ringer with a total donation amount of $31,000.

Perhaps the huge success of WCAP's annual Salvation Army Radiothon has created the impression that all of the local Army's fundraising needs have been met.

Community Garden: The Community Garden is located behind the Corps building and operates throughout the summer to provide fresh vegetables to the feeding program and to food distribution.

The warehouse at 901 Trade St. has about 19,000 square feet, and the Salvation Army is using about half of that space.

Donations can also be made through the Free 98-1 Rockin' the Stockin' Toy Drive, which benefits the Salvation Army.
