While some may think it is still a little early to unpack the holiday decorations, The Salvation Army has been hard at work, planning Christmas programs for several months. Now, as the red kettles are appearing outside stores, and Angel Trees are being set up, volunteers are needed to help ensure men, women and children in need throughout our community experience the joys of Christmas.
The Salvation Army of Longview is seeking volunteers for its Red Kettle campaign and Angel Tree program for Gregg and Harrison Counties.
Become a Bell Ringer –Every dollar collected in the red kettle supports The Salvation Army’s social services programs throughout the year right here in Gregg and Harrison Counties.
