Major Carr provides an update on Salvation Army’s multiple Holiday programs to help people in the community, especially in this pandemic year when many people who are usually financially stable are experiencing job losses and being forced to make significant cuts in spending. The Angel Tree initiative has been underway since the beginning of November, providing additional time for people to participate, with more than 1000 children registered this year. The deadline to purchase gifts from the Angel Tree (or the online ‘Registry for Good’ is December 10th. The Red Kettle Program with bell ringers went into full gear this past Friday, Black Friday’. Salvation Army can still use help from volunteers as bell ringers. All volunteers will be provided with masks and face shields to ensure Covid 19 safety. Additionally, there’s a Red Kettle program that can be a social media initiative for anyone who wants to help raise funds online. And Walmart, one of the main locations for Angel Trees and the Registry for Good’ has added the ‘Round Up to Inspire Hope’ program, giving people the opportunity to round up online purchases to the next dollar, with all proceeds going to Salvation Army.
