Salvation Army Provides for 160 Families

Salvation Army Red Kettle stolen from Kroger store in GP Woods

The Salvation Army will hold a similar event on Christmas Day.

Gratitude filled the room as sweet potato, cornbread and turkey filled the bellies of dozens of people fighting different storms. Through a partnership with Golden Corral, some 20,000 meals were served.

Turkeys given to the Lynchburg Salvation Army from the Vibe radio station on behalf of the Steve Harvey Show.

About 160 families will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner Thursday thanks to Sheridan's Salvation Army.

Twyla Burt has been a volunteer here in Bentonville for the past eight years.

But officials with the Salvation Army in Albany said there is a real need for more bell ringers and volunteers to help them accomplish their mission.

"Even though the economy has begun to turn around, it still takes some time to do it", she said.

Tabay, the sole surviving member of 13 original Filipino who signed up to serve during World War II, said he waited a long time before learning that he would be the recipient of the Congressional Medal.

The Salvation Army's goal this year is $70,000 and they need more volunteers to achieve this. "Every year I come, and I always get the prettiest one". This is all possible due in part to the funds generated from its annual red kettle campaign. "There is great power in all our Belk associates and customers rallying around one cause - and we really want to focus all of our efforts on this impactful campaign". She had volunteered to work at the location, and later learned that Walmart Manager Jerry Pressley has offered to let The Salvation Army set up its kettle at a second door to make up for the loss. Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes, who's family own the catering company, says this is their 30th year helping out.
