  • Salvation Army provides Christmas gifts for hundreds of Knoxville families

When you donate to The Salvation Army, your gift truly makes a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

Dozens of Salvation Army volunteers loaded and pushed the carts to waiting parents such as Elizabeth Williams, who signed up her 9-year-old and 1-year old for the program.

The Salvation Army red kettle program is only 52% to its Christmas goal of raising $750,000. The Salvation Army has a national program called The Angel Tree, which is created to help these struggling children receive items on their wishlist.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said. "We're always here to meet the community's needs". These next couple of weeks are our last days of kettles at storefronts, so this time of year is crucial.

The Red Kettle Campaign is one of the longest-running and most recognizable fundraising efforts in the world.

The application process, which verifies income and need, began in early October and this year's new favorites included Easy-Bake Ovens and drones, Canning said.

This year, the Salvation Army says it expects to provide gifts to over 8,000 kids in Hampton Roads.

"Now we're asking our community to help us reach our goal financially". He hopes the Salvation Army can ease the burden for as many people as possible.

Chloe Anderson, Rebecca Brawn and Clara Slater from Blackburn Salvation Army Band were invited to perform live on Blue Peter on Thursday night, in an event that saw young people from all over the country come together for a special Christmas Performance. And we help entire families build a plan to move toward financial independence through our programs.

A highlight of the holiday season is the traditional Christmas dinner. Beth Sturdivant with the Salvation Army.

Vietnam veteran Marshall Ewing has been volunteering for almost 30 years, and he says each year is even more fulfilling than the last.
