  • Salvation Army Christmas dinner

Isle of Wight Councillor Barry Abraham, cabinet member for planning and housing, said: "We do all we can to provide emergency support to people, to prevent them from ending up on the streets and the council is extremely grateful to the Salvation Army in helping us to support the vulnerable homeless this winter".

"A lot of the really awesome things we got this morning were teen gifts, so gift cards, earbuds, iTunes, movie passes, sport equipment, everything we need for teens", said Patty Lou Bryant, communications coordinator for the non-profit. "We provide food baskets for them and collect new, packaged toys from individual donors or community groups".

From Saturday December 9th 10 a.m.to 2 p.m., there will be "Fill The Truck" boxes readily available at a Walmart location near you [Coulter, Tascosa, Georgia, Grand, and Canyon (11:00am-2:00pm) Walmarts].

According to the Washington Post , Haley said the United States will take "every precaution" to ensure the safety of its athletes. And certainly, that's a flawless opportunity for all of them to go and do something they've worked so hard for.

"It's incredible", said Marcos Marquez with The Salvation Army, Portland Moore Street Corps. "At last report we are a little bit ahead of last year's totals".

The Angel Tree program has a goal of providing gifts for 850 children this year, and the deadline to contribute is December 17, DeGregorio said.

The donation is believed to be the largest cash donation in a single kettle in the Portland area. Homelessness is devastating. People die on the streets every year.

In years past, the choir had an event titled "The Night Christ Was Born", which featured speeches from community leaders.
