‘Red Kettle Concern’: Salvation Army in North Alabama in need of help

Red Kettle Concern

NORTH ALABAMA, AL (WAFF) - With Christmas less than two weeks away, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign is in need of help.

The local chapter serving Morgan, Limestone, and Lawrence counties is $65,000 short of its $110,00 goal, according to our news partners at the Decatur Daily.

The money going into the red kettles outside the supermarkets goes to the Salvation Army’s overall budget, meaning that a lack of funds could mean less services provided.

The Salvation Army of Decatur was able to bring in $99,000 through red kettles in 2017.

“We have nine days left. We will be out there every day, including until noon on Christmas Eve. No matter what, we know that God will provide. We trust that.” said Lt. Richard Watts, head of the local outreach mission.

Red kettle locations can be found at Walmart and Walmart Neighborhood Market, Kroger, Big Lots, and Hobby Lobby.

Anyone interested in becoming a bell ringer for the Salvation Army can do so by calling 256-227-8418.
