The Salvation Army is thankful to Red Kettle partners that stood by us and even stepped up their support despite the challenges of COVID-19 in 2020.
In November 2020, the Salvation Army of Martinsville made a call for help to #Rescue Christmas for those facing poverty, and our community answered at the Red Kettle. In a year of unprecedented need, we expected a possible 50 percent decrease in fundraising at the Red Kettle. Instead, we were able to exceed our goal and provide help to so many in need. That is because of partners, donors, and tireless workers who stepped up amid the affects by #COVID19 in 2020.
If you donated to The Salvation Army in 2020,your help Rescued Christmas for more than 1,000 local families as well their children.
“But we cannot afford to forget the need continues in 2021. Like everyone else, we are also making adjustments to make sure we can help serve the community safely and effectively as long funding and resources are available. We help with electric and rental assistance, food and clothing. It is our goal to make sure hope is restored in the household here at The Salvation Army” said Lt. Bradley Mumford.
