The Salvation Army will launch their annual Kettle Campaign on Friday, but the organization says it needs more help to reach their goal in Kingston. Funds collected during the campaign will provide for families and individuals across the state during the holiday season and year-round, sustaining the vital programs and services from The Salvation Army that help people in need manage their daily lives.

If you would like to volunteer to man a kettle site for an hour or two contact the Salvation Army at 419-224-9055 extension 2-1-1.

"One Christmas Eve, when we didn't have anything, The Salvation Army came and brought food and toys and candy and I thought one day I have to do something", said Roche.

Dallas has the highest child poverty rate among big cities with 38 percent of DFW area children living in poverty, according to Dallas News. "Now, I can't walk by a kettle without putting money in".

Volunteers can sign up for ringing locations and times through the Mankato Salvation Army's website at www.salvationarmynorth.org/community/mankato/.

All the money donated through the kettle campaign in Kingston, stays in Kingston, and goes to help those in need locally.

The Salvation Army feeds the hungry, provides shelter and disaster relief and offers addiction recovery, domestic violence services and youth programs. So many of us have a lot. o many of us don't have very much. It's 365 days a year.

Last year, the campaign was able to exceed its goal, and both Sadowy and Roche are hoping to see the same this year.

"What the community gives us, we give back".
