Salvation Army reports Kettle shortfall

Salvation Army


Major Dennis Camuti, Corps Officer for the York Salvation Army announced that this year’s Christmas kettle returns are behind. “We have five less days this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Major Camuti commented.  “That’s our main kettle season when most families are out doing their Christmas shopping.” The rain, snow and ice this past week have also put a damper on donations by passerby.  The Major noted that with only 13 kettle days left before Christmas, the annual campaign is $25,000 behind 2012’s income.  The public is encouraged to donate generously when they pass a kettle.  Proceeds from the kettle campaign provide Christmas food and turkeys to some 2000 families and support the Family Emergency Services of  The Salvation Army throughout the year.  Kettles are located at 20 locations throughout the county and are staffed by bell ringers from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00  p.m. each day except Sunday.   Civic organizations and service clubs volunteer along with

church groups and individuals.  For more information regarding the campaign one can call The Salvation Army at 848-2364.
