The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign has raised $151,545, according to a Salvation Army news release.

The kettles were taken when the Salvation Army employee driving the vehicle stopped at a Safeway in Tracey. Cook said Saturday could be big for them with lots of local organizations volunteering to ring bells for them.

"The important thing is that no one was hurt, and for that, we are grateful", said Lt. Michael Evans of The Salvation Army Las Cruces Corps Community Center.

Good-hearted people, who are plentiful in Haywood County, understand the importance of charitable giving and that worthy causes surround us.

The Salvation Army Service Unit will retain 90 percent of all kettle drive donations, which will benefit the Titusville area.

The goal is to get business, organizations and other groups to compete.

The Salvation Army in Hayward is in desperate need of bell ringers this holiday season, Salvation Army officials said.

Make checks payable to Nodaway County Salvation Army.

That was before the company learned how passionate its customers were about The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army's board of directors and those who lend their time to the Titusville unit are all volunteers.
