Major Timothy A. Sheehan, Delaware State Coordinator for The Salvation Army, discussed the annual Red Kettle Campaign, a fundraiser that supports their programming year-round.  We talked about the double-whammy of the past year, the pandemic’s lingering economic effects and the flood damages to homes and businesses from Hurricane Ida, combined they put more people at the brink of financial disaster.   He described the programs the holiday giving supports, including emergency shelters, job training, addiction treatment and support, aid for the chronic homeless, their Anti-Human Trafficking work, as well as their kids’ camps, music lessons and after-school offerings, and services for the elderly.   He reminded us that funds raised stay in Delaware and that a $25 donation to The Salvation Army helps provide a child in need a safe place to stay, $50 helps feed 39 hungry stomachs, $100 can provide three nights of shelter for someone in need and a $500 donation helps provide a month of meals for a Delaware family of four.  You can support them at any Red Kettle location with cash or contactless electronic pay, at Walmart and Christiana Mall Giving Trees and online at SalvationArmyDelaware.org where you can also learn more about their programs and services.
