VNB Community Counts: Salvation Army Kettle Campaign

December 11, 2009

Community Counts gives you a chance to help you learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Salvation Army and their Kettle Campaign.

Captain Dan Matthews joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the Salvation Army and their annual Red Kettle Campaign, which uses the donations year-round, and not just during Christmas or the holiday seasons.

Captain Matthews says as of Thursday, they are down over $20,000 this year compared to 2008. The Salvation Army has lost some major locations this year, namely Harris Teeter and CVS stores, but they are looking for replacements.

Any Charlottesville area businesses that are interested in having the bell ringers outside their storefront can call the local Salvation Army at 434-295-4058.
