Salvation Army Delivers Hundreds Of Christmas Hampers

Greater Baton Rouge has suffered a 14 percent decrease in Red Kettle donations in comparison to last year's donations. The Salvation Army says this year's goal is still lacking $100,000 to meet its campaign goal for 2017.

Major Paul Rideout, the Director of Community & Family Services, says "we have faith the goal can be reached" by the end of the day Saturday.

They've been contributing to the cause for over 20 years.

We would like to thank you all, and have a merry Christmas. "Each year, the citizens of MA make it possible for us to help support those in need, we are asking that they give generously to ensure service delivery is maintained again this year".

On the bright side, IL has seen an increased racial, ethnic and gender diversity in the state's work-aged population. The state's year-to-year growth rate of less than 0.1 percent lagged the national growth rate of 0.72 percent.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is urging people all over the state to give the kettles a boost if possible.

The Salvation Army says the money raised during the holiday season helps provide food and toys for those in need.

In Ephrata, red kettles can be found at Safeway and Walmart.
