Salvation Army kettle campaign ready to begin

Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle campaign

"People are working but they just aren't making enough to pay for the needs for their family".

The theme of this year's campaign is "Love Your Neighbor".

"That food bank is basically run on public generosity - donations, food drives", he said. Ninety percent of the funds raised here in Saranac Lake stay in Saranac Lake to provide emergency rent assistance, emergency housing, food, clothing, utility assistance and medical expense help. We're a we people, we're not a me people.

"We see from very young children to the elderly, families to singles". "We are noticing we have to supplement a lot of the food by making large purchases, which cuts back on a lot of programs and services that we could be offering in the community".

The Weeknd, Bella Hadid 'hanging out' again
Yes, The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) is doing the same and he's doing the fix work with ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid . She has since been seen with Justin , who she dated on and off between 2010 and 2014, on a number of occasions.

The goal for this year's kettle campaign is $130,000. We have a Christmas mailer that goes out as well. and because we cover such a wide area, the mailer hits all the different postal codes in our region. "What we spend on average in the course of a year is about $230,000 to $240,000", said the director of Program Services.

Volunteer bell ringers are needed.

Groups that volunteer for a day will get a sponsorship sign on their kettle naming their organization."The Met-Ed/First Energy retirees have committed to fill a spot for the entire day and they will have a sign", Tressler said.

Small business can put small kettles near their counters to collect donations if they want to. It's not a big commitment. A friendly competition of bell ringing between Mayor Todd Barton and Commissioner John Frey will take place from 7 p.m.to 8 p.m. on November 25 during the Downtown Party Night festivities.
