LET Give more than ever to the Red Kettle

Sadly, not everyone in our community can look forward to a nice Christmas.

The less advantaged among us are growing in numbers. Last year the Salvation Amy's Toy and Joy Shop served 2,000 people. Helping organizations like Salvation Army and Christmas Anonymous are already stressed for this year. The need is great and you could make a difference. How?

Buy each of your children or grandchildren one less present this year.

Reduce by 30 percent the amount you plan to spend on a gift for your significant other. Next time, order a less expensive item on the restaurant menu. Forgo a specialty coffee once each week until Christmas. Do this in a spirit of thanksgiving and self-sacrifice, and put your saved dollars into a Salvation Army Red Kettle.

On your behalf, and with your money, the Salvation Army touches the lives of hundreds and hundreds of very needy children and families in our community. They become that part of you that wants to help.

Give more than ever to the Red Kettle. It's the right thing to do.

It's the Spirit of Christmas.
