Kettle campaign kicks off

November 21, 2003

Albany- Volunteer bell ringers for the Salvation Army will be collecting donations at 8 different locations around the city until Christmas Eve.

The campaign raises more than 50% of the Salvation Army budget. They are hoping the sagging economy won't affect the this year's donations.

"That's also the time when the people that need these services the most also hurt more and it's time for us all to step up as a community and re-double our efforts to give just a little bit more, and maybe take away from our own Christmas, and make sure somebody whose not as fortunate has a Christmas," says Mayor Tommy Coleman.

The Salvation Army also has an Angel tree set up at Albany Mall. The tree will be decorated with the names of hundreds of Dougherty County children who are need of Christmas gifts.
