It’s that time of year: Donate extra change to Salvation Army Red Kettle drive

Local News

It’s that time of year when you’ll start seeing friendly people beside those red buckets — The Salvation Army Red Kettle drive has officially started.

The Salvation Army and Mr. Darby’s Antique Emporium teamed up on Thursday to kick off a holiday fundraiser, and despite the snow and slush, shoppers turned out.

Mahoning County Salvation Army Coordinator Major Paul Moore brought the kettle for donations.

“Our goal this year is $400,000 for the Red Kettle campaign. We came close to $350 last year but we have more expenses, more need in the community coming up,” he said.

The Red Kettle campaign kicks into high gear on Black Friday. The kettles will be outside many shopping centers with their bells ringing.
