Each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas volunteers from several different organizations and churches in the area go out to local stores and ring bells, asking for donations to be placed in red buckets to help the hungry and poor in Bingham County and other counties in the area. Pick an angel and drop off their gift by December 6 and the Salvation Army will deliver it to the child by Christmas.
The Salvation Army says donation kettles with bell ringers raise around $30 per hour in donations. The tradition was created in 1979 and helps relieve the stress of gift giving for millions of families every year. "I'm just completely blown away", said Turlock SA Corps Major Debi Shrum. The program helps provide underprivileged children and seniors with gifts for Christmas.
The event also included a keynote address by Turlock Chief of Police Nino Amirfar, who emphasized the importance of community during the holidays. "And it is wonderful that we as a community come together to support our family, friends and those that we know", said Amirfar.
GameStop just suspended its PowerPass program
Technically, the PowerPass program had already kicked off by the time GameStop made the decision to temporarily shut it down. There is no word on when GameStop plans to finally release the program, or what software glitches need to be handled.
Amirfar shared with the crowd that the Turlock Police Department decreased crimes by eight percent last year, and an additional five percent so far this year.
The Salvation Army is also hosting a Thanksgiving Day Community Meal on November 23 from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m.at the Salvation Army Chesapeake Energy Center of Hope, located at 1001 N. Pennsylvania Ave.
The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is now ready for families to apply for Christmas assistance this holiday season - including food and toys. The bell ringing continues until December 23.
