Join us and ring the bell

To the editor:

To fulfill our goal of doing the most good and to share the joys of caring and sharing, the Salvation Army's traditional red kettle drive has been an integral part of the Christmas scene since 1891. Donations made to the red kettle aid needy families, seniors and the homeless by providing Christmas dinners, winter clothing, and toys as well as continuing year round with the basic necessities of food, clothing and medications.

Ninety percent of funds gathered will be used to provide emergency assistance to residents right in our area. The Upper Montgomery County Salvation Army service units of Canajoharie, Fort Plain and St. Johnsville have a long history of successful red kettle campaigns.

The red kettle tradition will continue and with the support of several new local businesses who are generously hosting a red kettle. Please help your favorite merchant raise the most to support the Salvation Army red kettle Christmas campaign. The merchant's red kettle that raises the most will receive a plaque and special recognition. And ... you'll be doing the most good.

Perhaps you have always been one who found it in your heart to donate to the red kettle, and are willing and able to take your generosity one step further by giving two hours of your time to ring the bell and help us gather much needed donations. If you can join in the treasured tradition or wish to make a financial donation, please call one of us.

We hope when you see the red kettle, you will be able to help fill the kettles and feel the joy of caring and sharing.

Thank you and may God bless you.

Jackie and Jessica Lape, Holly Craver, Tom and Lori Hajczewski,

Pastor Dave Prahst, Lori Fredricks
