“With the COVID-19 pandemic still among us, The Salvation Army is preparing for continued increases of requests for services this holiday season,” said Capt. Matt Trantham from The Salvation Army in Salisbury, MD. “With funds raised through the Red Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army will continue to provide help and hope to individuals and families in need.” The Salvation Army relies on the money raised through the Red Kettle Campaign to provide Christmas to local families in need and to safeguard the well-being of those in need in our community through year-round programming and social services. The red kettles will be at 24 locations around town until December 24 when the campaign ends.
