"The Salvation Army is here for you". "The funds we raise are essential because they provide the funding for community programs like The Food Bank".

The Salvation Army has been taking that spare change and turning it into tangible acts of kindness and assistance in Southern California for more than 130 years. "We have various locations and they just need to be in attendance at the location".

The Salvation Army Santa Clarita Valley Corps will host its inaugural Red Kettle Kickoff at the SCV Corps office, 22935 Lyons Ave.in Newhall, on Thursday, November 16, from 5 p.m.to 7 p.m.

"The kettle campaign fuels what we do throughout the year, Lt. Stephen Toynton said".

The evening will feature music courtesy of a Salvation Army Brass Band and the showcasing of the "Kettle Bug" - a VW Beetle modified into the largest mobile Salvation Army red kettle in America and capable of accepting both cash and credit card donations.

With the holidays upon us one local charity is asking for your help to make Christmas special for thousands of families. Cole said if people wish their items to go toward local families this Christmas, they must be donated by December 3.

Bridger said they have several two-hour shifts to fill throughout the holiday season.

"Some people come along and put in few coins; some people may give a cheque for $100".

If people are shopping for their toy donations, they are reminded to think not only about younger children, but gifts for older high school aged youth as well, Cole said.

"We have set new records in Red Deer in previous four years in particular", he said. "We need you to get out and ring to help us make others' lives a little easier". "I believe The Salvation Army is one of the most efficient ways to help the people of Navarro County".
