Nanaimo Salvation Army says man trying to dupe people in door-to-door scam

"We were hoping to reach $100,000 and we are just about half way there". Previous year 32,518 meals were served by the Salvation Army in Grande Prairie in addition to the 3,111 hampers that were handed out.

Vietnam veteran Marshall Ewing has been volunteering for almost 30 years, and he says each year is even more fulfilling than the last.

The average amount raised by the annual holiday season Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign in Door County is around $40,000 to $45,000.

Rodgers said the Salvation Army will also be purchasing bicycles for children who asked for one and the request was not satisfied through Angel Tree donations. The Salvation Army also will assist a homeless family to find a rental unit and help with rent payments. Interested people can call the Salvation Army at 843-662-4461 and ask for Rodgers.

"The Red Kettle donations collected in Door County stay in Door County", Lemkuil said.

Donations to the 2017 Christmas Campaign can be made at FilltheKettle.com, at our local kettles, by downloading The Salvation Army Kettle App, or via phone, walk-in or mail to The Salvation Army, 545 Cumberland St. N., Thunder Bay, ON P7A 4S2 - 807-345-6492 (credit card & debit accepted here).

In 2016 the Salvation Army helped 16 families with lodging and helped 106 families pay their rent.

Yet, it wasn't until the little girl playing Mary made a decision to take matters into her own hands and take the doll back. Teegan then took the doll back and the laughs continued. "She's a stickler for the rules", Benson said.

Kalispell did not participate in the competition this year. "I'm one of them", Scroggins said.

"They can see that it's volunteers and employees [asking for donations], so they know their donation is safe", Scroggins said.

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

"There are people who do that during the winter, too". That is a daunting number, but it will allow us to provide far more than food and shelter to those in need in our community.

Wicke attributed the losses this year to increases in online shopping and not enough bell ringers, both paid and volunteer.

The Meadville unit of The Salvation Army has had people this morning stopping by its location at 1087 Park Ave.to drop off toys and monetary donations in the wake of Thursday's fire.
