Salvation Army Distributes Toys, Clothing & Food

Jenesta left and Robert Kathen have been volunteering with the Salvation Army for the past 47 years. They were manning the red kettle at the Highland Square Mall Thursday in hopes of helping the Salvation Army reach its fund raising goal for 2017. The

Thursday was distribution day at the Salvation Army in Watertown.

A food donation made by a Farmington man to a local charitable organization will help feed more than 200 people this Christmas.

An abundance of toys were on display at the Marquette County Salvation Army, ready to be distributed.

"People who would normally be donating are now waiting on employment insurance or living on half of what they were before", she said.

In the months and years ahead, the couple hopes to expand the social services offered at the local corps and bolster the Salvation Army's relationship with the community.

There seem to be revisions to the metallic trim, and a new design around the base of the transmission shifter. This turbocharged engine will be the new range topper and that's not a bad thing.

Red Kettle funds assist the homeless and those looking for work.

Providing gifts for four teenagers on her own is a challenge, said single mother Heather Kerns of Parkersburg.

The group said the program helped almost 100 children in its first year.

"They're having a good time being involved", he said.

Bruce Shirran is the executive director of the Salvation Army in Sudbury. Smaller groups, with about six regular volunteers, helped sort and pack the items over the last couple of weeks, she said.

Posters claim Meryl Streep 'knew' about Harvey Weinstein
She is the grand lady of Hollywood and someone who, not unlike Harvey Weinstein , wears her progressive politics on her sleeve. McGowan emphasized that the people she finds "most reprehensible" are those who she believes knew about the alleged behavior.

The toys donated this year range from bikes to dolls to baseballs.

An anonymous donor dropped a Krugerrand in The Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama's red kettle located outside the Daphne Walmart over the weekend.

"The Salvation Army said they are also short-staffed for outside bell ringers and can always use the extra help".

Bartsch said a gold tooth was dropped into one of the Michigan City kettles past year. "We have 12 in the city". "If it weren't for this, there'd be a lot of people who can't get their kids gifts".

The toys are going to 700 children. Bob Schmig's connection to the Salvation Army, however, dates to before he and his wife earned their officers' epaulets.
