How Does The Salvation Army Help During Christmas?
Every year The Salvation Army MS Gulf Coast helps thousands of families during the Christmas season by providing gifts that they would no have otherwise. This annual program is called the Angel Tree Program. Its success depends on the generosity of the people of our community to “adopt” an Angel off of a tree at a local retailer and purchase a gift or two off that Angel’s wish list.
One of the number one things The Salvation Army is known for is our Red Kettle Campaign during the Christmas Season. This is where bell ringers ring the bell outside retailers across the country to help us raise money. Did you know that the monies raised by our Red Kettle Campaign go to our operating costs for the ENTIRE year? That’s why every donation is so very important during this time. Each coin and bill help provide someone with a warm meal, a bed to rest, clean clothes, and so much more.
