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

CHICAGO - Lt. Governor Sheila Simon and members of her staff will volunteer Monday at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Simon said this Thanksgiving season, demand for assistance at Illinois food pantries is up, the price of food is increasing and federal funding for food safety net programs is under threat. The Greater Chicago Food Depository is serving 59 percent more people this year than three years ago.

“Whether it is one dollar, one can of food, or one hour of volunteering, we want our donations to add up to no child going hungry this holiday season,” Simon said. She and her staff will use voluntary furlough time for this service project.

TIME: 9 to 11 a.m.
DATE: Monday, November 21
PLACE: Greater Chicago Food Depository warehouse, 4100 West Ann Lurie Place, Chicago
