The Salvation Army is ringing in the start of the holiday season. Today they held their kettle kick-off at the Wal-Mart on Montgomery Cross Road. Bell ringers will be collecting money through Christmas at stores all over the Coastal Empire.
This is the Salvation Army's largest fundraiser of the year. "It's that time of year and we're out raising money to meet the needs of people in our community," said the group's Henry Hunter. "Not only will this money help out for Christmas, but it will also help us year long in 2005 when the hunger is still there and people need a warm place to stay."
Last year, the Salvation Army raised $109,407.55 in the Coastal Empire from its kettle drive.
