Giant Food Stores donate to Salvation Army of York

  • About 100 volunteers served Christmas dinner to about 1,000 people at the Salvation Army's Booth Centre

Volunteers interested in helping to ring bells and collect money are also needed, and can sign up to do so by calling The Salvation Army of Midland, at 989-496-2787.

"It's just a way to make a person feel in the season and in the spirit", said Baldwin.

Despite the difference, Goodwill still hopes to reach the goal by the end of the Red Kettle Campaign on December 23.

It's a job he takes a lot of pride in.

"I have had this happen to me before and I know how cool it is for the families to receive it", said another woman.

Baldwin suffered a stroke in 2006 and has been in a wheelchair ever since.

Major Dean says this is the first time they've ever had a kettle stolen and the timing couldn't be worse. "It's one of the ways our members give back and show our appreciation to the community".

The holiday campaign is providing Salvation Army organizations across the country with $155,000 this year.

"It impacts our community", said Pardella.

Funds have been trickling in while the need continues to increase.

For Baldwin, it's all about spreading joy for a good cause.

"Each of the angel's represent a child, there's a first name and the age of the child and sizes that they wear and wishes and needs", she said. "That's why we hope that donors in our community will really come out this weekend to help us receive every penny of that $4,000 match", said Captain Brian Goodwill, Corps Officer of The Salvation Army Midland Corps.

"The Salvation Army does more for people than anybody around here, but it kinda stings on a personal level", said Lt. Steve Stockdale of the Warren County Sheriff's Office.
