Thanksgiving, Christmas and the holidays are typically a time when people stop and reflect on all the things that they are thankful for. Not everyone is as fortunate. Maybe you help by volunteering at a food kitchen or donating supplies. There is another way you can help. We are very proud that, April, from our Madison office, heads up the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign in our area. Every year she and her family stand outside of Price Chopper in Hamilton NY to ring the bell and collect donations for the organization. She helps in many other ways too by putting together gift baskets for less fortunate families in our community. There is a calendar with slots that need filling. People volunteer to ring the bell for the Salvation Army. With your help, we will raise funds here in Hamilton to directly provide emergency assistance to people in need in our community including Madison NY. The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign funds are used for such emergencies as Food, Clothing, Shelter, Medical expenses, Utilities, School Supplies, even disaster relief!
