This year the need is expected to increase, however, donations are less than half of last year. As of Monday, the Salvation Army only had 160 turkeys left and not enough Thanksgiving food items to last through the day - let alone Tuesday and Wednesday.

Doing the most good

The Salvation Army lived up to its motto of "doing the most good" during the nonprofit's annual Kettle Kick-Off fundraising luncheon on Tuesday. The main highlight of the annual event is the Kettle Klash, a race to raise the most cash in a set time limit. Teams run around the room with Salvation Army kettles and collect donations from luncheon attendees. Donators ring small bells to alert the kettle teams that they have cash to donate. The Kettle Klash is loud, frantic, and it brings thousands of dollars to the Salvation Army every year.
