  • Toyota employees step up for Salvation Army

The Lima Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign are in need of additional help this holiday season as they prepare for the last week of the campaign.

Compared to other years, Salvation Army volunteers say this year's toy drive is the biggest they've seen. "We're not, like, way off the chart, but we're doing well". "People tend to be more generous as it gets closer to Christmas".

"(We're) trying to provide for the children here in town in the community that need assistance this Christmas", said Andrea Sikes.

Igleheart said the 2017 red kettle fundraising goal is approximately $105,000-$106,000. But Parker said there's no way to know how much money was inside.

The donor asked to remain anonymous. Igleheart said the agency is a bit behind in the mail-in campaign, but he said this could be because of a continued processing of letters by the postal service.

Additionally, Hankook employees participated in the Angel Tree program by purchasing and donating gifts, or by volunteering to sort and wrap the community-donated gifts.




Between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. today, volunteers will be shopping at Target for gifts for Angel Tree recipients. Typical requests are clothing for youths and small toys.

"It went well", he said.

The Salvation Army still needs to raise about $7 million for the new centre.

Financial donations may be brought or mailed to The Salvation Army at 2000 Court St., Port Huron.

Major Connie Shaw, of the Ottawa Salvation Army Corps, noted as of Saturday, the agency is 75 percent to its goal of $70,000. "So we count the kettles the next morning, find her ring, gave it to her and she gave us a $100 donation".
