Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO of SC Johnson, has pledged a two-for-one personal match for all donations at Racine-area Salvation Army red kettles on Saturday.

By 11 a.m., fewer than 20 bicycles remained and very few bags of toys and food.

"These are the funds we rely on not only to help the 300-plus families from Rome and surrounding communities this Christmas with toys and food but these funds also help to provide services to our community year round", said Krueger.

Dennis Long, of Montgomery, Ala., Dollar General's director of loss prevention for the Southeast, said helping the Salvation Army enriches the lives of the volunteers by giving back to the local community and children. It is most recognised during the Christmas season through its volunteers who stand outside business places and play or sing Christmas carols, or ring bells to inspire passers-by to place donations of cash and checks inside the trademark red kettles. We also would like to thank Hooker Furniture for allowing us to participate with Grace Network at the Charity Sale, and AGL, Carter Bank & Trust and Berry Elliot Realtors for sponsoring our Red Kettle Campaign and Nelson Auto for transportation needs.

"If your employer gives out ham and turkeys, that's something you may not be able to use, that's something we'd be more than grateful to take those from you". In the past, the Salvation Army would go through the process of buying and packing a ham, turkey, potatoes and all of the fixings needed for a Christmas dinner and hand out hampers.

Osterholm said it's still a good idea to get a shot. "Some regions see more flu A, which is common, some regions more flu B. She said it's not too late for people to get the flu vaccine, although it takes about two weeks to reach full efficacy.

"It makes me feel good, and it makes me feel happy", she said. The annual Christmas dinner will be held on Tuesday and the Salvation Army expects to feed 300 people.

To find out if there's an urgent need in your community, call your local Salvation Army office so that no child is left on a waiting list Christmas morning.

The Salvation Army will need donations by December 21 at 240 North Ave adn Angel Tags can be found at Lowe's.

Or maybe, despite all the visibility and publicity it receives every holiday season, most people don't really have a clear idea of what the Salvation Army is all about.
