Kettle Campaign a Sign of the Season

KSAL Staff - November 19, 2015 6:02 am

It’s a sign of the season. The Salina Salvation Army Kettle Campaign began this week.

Major Mary Burris tells KSAL News that the Kettle Campaign is the organization’s single largest fund raiser. It funds local Salvation Army programs throughout the year.

Red kettles and bell ringers this year are currently stationed at 7 locations around Salina. Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving there will be 15 total locations.

Burris says that volunteer bell ringers are still needed. She says that it is a great public service project for groups to participate in. To volunteer, contact Roxanne Matous at the Salina Salvation Army.

Bell ringers will be out accepting donations through December 24th.

The Salvation Army used to have their membership man the kettles and that meant something now they have people that many look like they sleep under an over pass. Not all look like this but a majority do. I believe any organization that wants people to donate to their cause should look appropriate. I do not mind donating to someone dressed up like the Salvation Army does in uniform but I will not donate to someone that looks like they came off skid row. Further the people they have doing this leave to take breaks and leave the kettles out with no one around that makes real good sense. What I want to see is the people running the Salvation Army in Salina out there in uniform ringing the bell or are they to good and important to do that?
