Salvation Army feeds the hungry in Savannah on Thanksgiving

Salvation Army Red Kettle stolen from Kroger store in GP Woods

You might even hear a "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Holidays".

"When you hear that bell, it's a sign of hope in the community", said Lt. James Sullivan with the Albany Salvation Army. Anyone interested in volunteering for service or for deliveries can contact the Salvation Army at 304-485-4529. Six years later, the idea spread to the east coast.

"We really have a community, " explained Washington.

"It's good to see people get a meal and smile", Captain Marvels says.

This year, kettles will be at 15 different locations across Sanford.

Nearby, an assembly line of volunteers prepared 3,500 pounds of green beans and sweet potatoes. They'll don the Santa hat and a red apron and pick up a bell. "Donations collected are used in the community where they are given to fund vital programming, practial assistance and client support".




GOVERNOR Ralph D.L.G. Torres and first lady Diann T. Torres on Thursday participated in the CNMI Salvation Army's Thanksgiving activities. "I believe in it".

Volunteers from the Post, the Auxiliary, Sons of American Legion and the community share the "reason for the season" by preparing and serving the free Thanksgiving buffet that is open to all members of Post 159 and residents of Williamstown School District. "The money went towards Christmas hampers to ensure everyone who needed a hamper was able to get one".

Those familiar bells and red kettles are back this year outside of South Georgia stores as the Salvation Army kicks off its annual fundraising campaign.

Last year, the Lee County operation raised around $100,000 for various programs. "This year, we blacked out Wednesday because of Thanksgiving and that allowed me the chance to come and help".

The organization said stretching their resources out across the metro and giving as many people as possible a reason to be thankful this holiday is what Thanksgiving is all about.
