Businesses, Club, Churches are Asked to Step Up to the Plate Quad Cities, IA/IL: Hundreds more Red Kettle Campaign volunteer bell ringers are needed to help collect donations at all fifty Quad Cities Red Kettle Locations.

In order to cut costs now and in the future, The Salvation Army needs to have an “army” of volunteer bell ringers. Major Gary Felton states, “The 5-year plan is to reduce our paid bell ringers by 20% each year. Last year, 1,000 hours of bell ringing was covered by volunteers, if we can increase it another 3,000 – we could eliminate the paid bell ringers and save thousands and thousands of dollars. I’ve been in appointments, namely Green Bay, where volunteers do all of the bell ringing, and we need the Quad Cities can do it.”

Louie Alongi of KKJW Engineering Consultants has been coordinating his company’s bell ringing activities for years had this to say, “I hope more business leaders will step up to the plate to volunteer and also make a donation on behalf of their employees. Each year, while we are bell ringing, community members will tell us that more businesses and their employees should participate with the Red Kettle efforts of The Salvation Army.”

Churches, Service Clubs, Businesses, and other clubs are asked to Adopt a Kettle for a day. Please go to www.ringbells.org for easy sign-up. 82 cents of every dollar donated to The Salvation Army is used to sustain year-round programs that foster hope, and help change lives.

QUAD CITIES, USA: Here in the Quad Cities, and all across the country, an electronic alternative is
available for people who do most of their shopping on-line.

§  Jcpenney and The Salvation Army have joined forces again this Christmas season to spread cheer to
even more children, teens and seniors in need through the Angel Giving Tree online program.

§  From now through Dec. 13, customers will be able to visit jcp.com/angel and participate in an online
version of The Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree program, enabling customers to provide gifts to children,
teens and seniors who, due to financial hardship, may not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.

§  The online Angel Giving Tree program builds on the legacy of The Salvation Army's Angel Giving Tree
program that has been an annual Christmas tradition for more than 40 years.

§  Customers can choose to adopt an Angel in any community by searching by zip code, city and state, age
and gender. The angel adoption process takes less than 10 minutes, which is followed by a confirmation
email that includes the Angel’s wish list and information on where to ship your gifts.

§  This year, supporters have the option of adopting 10 or more angels as part of a new group adoption
feature. Adopting angels as a group enables companies, churches, civic organizations or online
communities to manage the group adoption process online by using the “create a group” function on
jcp.com/angel.

§  In order to ensure delivery by Christmas, all adoptions and gift purchases made on jcp.com must be
completed before Dec. 9, otherwise you have until Dec. 13 to purchase a jcpenney gift card.

§  Angel Giving Tree gifts purchased through jcp.com can be shipped free of charge to one of 1,200
Salvation Army collection centers nationwide - putting the entire selection, shopping and delivery process
at the customer's fingertips.

§  Jcpenney is the only retailer to offer Salvation Army Angel adoptions online. In 2010, nearly 70,000 angels
were adopted online and together, jcpenney and the Army hope to far exceed that number in 2011.

§  Each year, The Salvation Army helps more than 4 million people through social service programs during
Christmas. The Angel Giving Tree program is one way a small gift can bring joy to a Salvation Army
Angel this Christmas season.

For the fifth consecutive holiday season, The Hungry Hobo restaurants in the Quad Cities will partner with The Salvation Army by collecting donations in the iconic Red Kettles throughout the Red Kettle Campagin and into January.

But this year, a 12th kettle has been added in their new LeClaire location complete with a beautiful riverfront view!

These smaller kettles, all donated by The Hungry Hobo, will sit on the countertops of all local Hungry Hobo restaurants collecting change and dollar bills. It is another example of a simple act that can help a person or family in crisis. “Every year, the Hungry Hobo customers astound us with their generosity,” states Holly Nomura, Development Director.

When you see a counter kettle at your favorite Hungry Hobo location, please give generously and make sure to thank them for hosting the kettle. "The Hungry Hobo is honored to be able to partner with The Salvation Army to help the needy throughout the Quad-City area," said Pryce T. Boeye, President, CEO of The Hungry Hobo.

In fact, 82 cents of every dollar you put into the counter kettle sustains The Salvation Army’s life- transforming programs which include shelter, food and clothing for individuals and families with no where else to turn.

Please dine at the following eleven locations where you can find Salvation Army counter kettles:

The Twelve Hungry Hobo Locations are:

  1. Bettendorf: 2320 Spruce Hills Drive
  2. Davenport: 4810 Elmore Avenue
  3. Davenport: 903 E. Kimberly Rd. (Old Town)
