Goat helps ring bell for Salvation Army donations

Goat helps ring bell for Salvation Army donations

Police say this woman stole a Salvation Army kettle. People seem to come out of the woodwork wanting to help with the kettles and all the things we do at Christmas.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

"As a first responder, my public service career has always been on the front lines and Salvation Army's always on the front lines".

As the Salvation Army holds its largest fundraiser of the year, known as the Red Kettle Campaign, a spokeswoman for the Salvation Army of Central Arkansas says the holiday bell-ringing tradition remains effective, despite many consumers carrying less cash.

Mr. Horrell said this year's Red Kettle campaign goal is $825,000, up about $25,000 from last year.




When her husband couldn't find the ring in his pocket when he got home, they immediately called the Salvation Army.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs without discrimination. "Often times, people get irritated about all the commercialization of this time of year". "We thought this year was going to be a little better". He also takes him to hospitals to help cheer up patients.

The local Kinsmen Club has been supporting the cause for more than 20 years now and donated $5,000 this year to help the cause. He hopes the Salvation Army can ease the burden for as many people as possible.

"We are so thankful for our volunteers", Envoy Brad Harris of the Pottsville Salvation Army said.

Providing meals and presents for children at Christmas is just the beginning for The Salvation Army. Right now, however, collections are down 10 percent from previous year even though the goal is higher.
