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

Financial donations may be brought or mailed to The Salvation Army at 2000 Court St., Port Huron.

So when a valuable item such as a cold coin makes its way into the red kettles, Fowler said it is a huge boost for the bell ringing campaign.

The goal combines red kettle, direct mail and year-end corporate donations, which go to support multiple social service programs in the community.

Hickman is holding out hope that despite the challenges that come with the winter weather that the community will rally around The Salvation Army and help lift it over it's fundraising target.

In what might be one of her most relevant Instagram posts yet, Serena Williams is asking moms on Instagram and Twitter for help. Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it's time to stop?' "Enjoy! She is attractive !"

The more donations that are received, the more creative and healthier foods the Salvation Army can offer, Adlam said, adding that the more they get, the more they can give.

Since the woman was reunited with her ring, FOX23 is told she hasn't taken it off once.

Following are actual cases taken from the files of The Salvation Army in Batavia.

"At first I thought it was a keychain; since we get a lot of people who accidentally put their keys in the kettle along with their lose change", said Marcos Marquez, the man who discovered the gold bar.

A symbol of the holiday season, the red kettles date back to 1891 when Salvation Army Capt. Joseph McFee set out a pot to raise money for a Christmas meal for a thousand of San Francisco and Oakland's poor.
