The Salvation Army Galveston County Red Kettle Campaign Ends for 2020
Galveston County, Texas (December 24, 2020) – The bells have stopped ringing for the 2020 season, bringing in $126,165 to support ministry to the people of Galveston County.
Despite dire predictions of depressed giving by many experts, the campaign so far has raised 8% more than last year. “We have much to be thankful for,” said Major Nathanael Doria, Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army of Galveston County. “The need continues to grow, and while the campaign fell short of the goal we know that the Lord will continue to provide the work that he wants done.”
The public can continue to contribute to the campaign by mail through December 31 at PO Box 990, Galveston, TX 77553 or online at SalvationArmyGalvestonCounty.org. Please mark your donations for the Kettles. Contact Holly McDonald at 409-939-9013 or email@example.com with questions.
