With only two days left in their campaign, the organization is urging people all around the state to donate to Red Kettles. The Salvation Army is hoping the generosity continues and they can meet their goals for this year. "This coin alone is worth ten times that".

A second subject remained in a dark-colored minivan, eventually backing into a parking stall near the store's front door on the west side of the building. This year, together we collected more than 216,000 cans (and still counting!) at our locations.

"And to come here and to see the line clear up the road, you know they help out a lot and it makes me happy". "So instead of being down and out and crying and whining, I said get your stuff and go and that's what I did". "We provide 50 families with a Thanksgiving dinner". Funds collected stay local and help families in need at Christmas and all year round.

"For Randolph County this year we had 77 families, and out of those 77 families, there was a total of 95 angels", she said.

"We were doing fine until about last week", Hughes said.

"Some of our individual kettles have increased, from an individual kettle base from a year ago", Hughes said.

Last year, The Salvation Army provided over 2.4 million meals and helped almost half a million MA residents in need.

Businesses interested in hosting an Angel Tree next year are urged to contact the Grafton office of the Salvation Army at 304-265-3565.
