The Salvation Army's annual kettle program is deployed worldwide during holidays
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - For over a hundred years the Salvation Army has made it its mission to fight hunger and poverty. To date, they help feed and house millions across the globe.
Even in the Desert Southwest children don't know where their next meal will come from. That's why organizations like the Salvation Army as so essential.
The faith-based nonprofit deploys a small army of volunteers worldwide. They're recognized by the ring of small bells which can only mean one thing.
During the holidays, a visit to your local store means listening to bells, rung by individuals standing next to red kettles. They're not asking for much, just spare change.
That loose change in your pocket goes to fund a wide range of programs from soup kitchens to emergency assistance. But, it all starts with recruitment, finding those individuals set on making a difference in their own communities.
If you're interested, you can visit your local Salvation Army office or give them a call.
