Red Kettle Crisis
I've observed and reported on human tragedies and human triumphs all of my adult life. Wherever an individual or a community has needed help, the Salvation Army has always been there. Not asking to be paid, not even asking for thanks simply doing good for the sake of doing good.
Maybe you're thankful for the Salvation Army, too. Perhaps during the holidays, you drop some money into Salvation Army red kettles.
Unfortunately, this year it's going to be different. Some retailers have banned the red kettles from in front of their stores.
The Salvation Army in San Antonio is afraid donations will fall $130,000 short of need. You know the Salvation Army: they could do a whole lot of good with that much money.
So it's time for us to help them. Please go to their website HERE and in the "Specific Use" box put "San Antonio, Texas".
Contributions may be sent directly to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 12568, San Antonio, TX 78212.
