  • Toyota employees step up for Salvation Army

On Dec. 7, Laconia police responded to Main Street for a report of theft of money from the Salvation Army holiday collection bucket.

Dear Editor: When I read recently that the Salvation Army was $39,000 below its kettle collections from past year, I was perplexed.

Numerous toys will be distributed Tuesday morning as families taking part in the "Angel Tree" outreach pick up toys, so their children will have gifts under the tree Christmas Day. I think we exceeded that.

According to a photo provided by the Salvation Army, the check was dated December 14 in the amount of $200,000.

"These toys will help fill those angels who are missing or were not returned", said Maj.

"It is important that people realize we are not just a Christmas organization - their contributions remain in St. Clair County to serve our residents all year long", Schuetz said.

And if you don't even have to come across a kettle to give.

Toot'n Totum has volunteered once again to team up with The Salvation Army to help provide 130 Angels with Christmas this year.

However, more people are still needed to continue monitoring the kettles, with shifts available during the crucial final week. The toys were provided through the Toys for Tots drive and food through the West Ohio Food Bank.

The Salvation Army is still looking for individuals, families, civic groups and even businesses to ring bells beside Red Kettles.
