Salvation Army shooting for $43K goal

Red Kettle donations down this year

PIQUA — With just a few days remaining in the campaign, The Salvation Army of Piqua, OH is currently $10,000 behind its goal of $43,000. The campaign ends on Saturday, Dec. 24.

“Although I’m concerned when donations are down, I remain confident that we can still make our goal this year,” says Major Robert Kramer. “This community has a wonderful history of supporting our programs and services, and I believe this will be the case again this year.”

The Salvation Army has relied upon its iconic kettle campaign since the 1890s. Donations to the kettles allow The Salvation Army to provide life-changing social services and other programs throughout the year. In Piqua, The Salvation Army provides an array of social services, including Emergency Assistance, Summer Feeding Program for children, After-School Programs, Emergency Disaster Services, Senior Services and Christmas Assistance.

There are several ways to make a contribution to the 2016 Kettle Campaign. Red kettles and volunteer bell-ringers are located at Kroger, Walmart and the Miami Valley Centre Mall. This year’s campaign also includes countertop kettles at Rocket Cleaners, Buffalo Rings & Wings, Unity Bank, 311 Drafthouse and Piqua Beverage.

Donations also can be made online ad t, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or by sending a check to 129 S. Wayne St. P. O. Box 615, Piqua, OH 45356.
