Sgt.-Maj. Fred Courtney of the Glace Bay Salvation Army prepares kettles for the upcoming red kettle campaign

The money raised locally will be used to support The Salvation Army's various programs and services throughout its service area including those in Knoxville, Maryville and Sevierville. "We still have shifts available to be fill".

The Red Kettle campaign ends on December 23 with kettles in eight locations around town.

Since 2006, Carol Roche has been standing post at one of the 19 Kingston kettle locations.

With the holidays just around the corner, a local organization is hoping that you will open your hearts and spread a little bit of Christmas cheer to those in need.

"When I was young, really small, I came from a dysfunctional and poor background, the one particular memory that I have that stands out in my mind is one Christmas", Roche said. Additionally, The Salvation Army served over one million hot meals statewide past year.

The Salvation Army hopes more volunteers will sign up and help local families in a time of need the same way Roche was helped all those years ago. The programs include daily lunches and a seasonal men's shelter.

"We have a new program we just launched, our Nourish program, which is helping individuals build life skills and cooking and things like that, and much more, and even summer camps", Sadowy said. This year's goal is $670,000.

"It is the biggest contributor to provide our funds that give direct assistance to community members", she said.
