Salvation Army Kicksoff Red Kettle Campaign and Angel Tree

By  | 

DOTHAN, AL-- (WTVY) Salvation Army volunteers are ringing in the season, working to make sure Christmas is special for kids who are less fortunate.

"We just want to make someone else's Christmas is a good Christmas," said Tiffany Glover, an Angel Tree adopter

The Dothan School of Dance and Dothan High School Choir got everyone in the holiday spirit, as the Salvation Army announced their goals.

This year they hope to raise $105,000 through the Red Kettle Campaign.
That's $9,000 more than last year.

The Angel Tree is also up, with around 400 names of children who need clothing and toys.

"Just come up here to the mall, and we have a table set up over here and there will be a tree with angels on it you just come and sign in and you get one of the angels and you go get the toys,” said Austin Sturdivant, Core Officer of the Salvation Army.

Whether you are planning to adopt an angel, or donate your money or time, one high school senior says it's worth it:

"Just go ahead and do it, that's my advice, you'll love it,” said Mason McCloud, volunteer.

The Salvation Army is also hoping to provide food for 400 seniors this Christmas.

If you would like to volunteer at one of the 20 bell-ringing locations or the angel tree, just call the Salvation Army at 334-792-1911.

They also need food donations. They can be dropped off at their office on South Bell Street.
