Salvation Army begins its Red Kettle campaign
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
The familiar sound of the Salvation Army Red Kettle Bells have begun in Clearfield. The 2012 Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign officially began Friday and will continue through Dec. 24.
Bell ringers will be at J.G. Food Warehouse, Big Lots, Ollie's and Radio Shack as well as Goodman's Foodliner in Curwensville and Bob's and Army Navy Store in downtown Clearfield. In addition, they will be at Walmart beginning Nov. 23.
This year, the bell ringing goal is $40,000, said Capt. Sharon Harford, corps officer, of the Clearfield Salvation Army.
"We need all that and more to be able to meet the needs of the Clearfield community." The money raised from our campaign serves two purposes: to provide Christmas assistance in the Clearfield area, and to raise money to meet our budgetary goals for 2013." It is important that it meet its goal for this upcoming year. In addition, Christmas fundraising campaign is three-pronged consisting of kettle donations, mail appeal and walk-in donations. All are needed to meet the needs of the community in 2012.
To contribute, drop a donation at any kettle or contact the Salvation Army at 119 Byers St. Bell ringers are needed and interested volunteers may call Harford at 765-4981 for information on how to sign up.
