Hello Christmas Newsers!
Entering its 128th Red Kettle season, The Salvation Army has enlisted actress, executive producer and New York Times best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure to inspire others to join the mission to combat hunger, homelessness and hopelessness.
During the holiday season, more than 3 million people rely on The Salvation Army to provide them with a warm meal on Christmas Day or toys for their children. Donating to the red kettles also enables The Salvation Army to serve more than 23 million people a year, which includes more than 9 million nights of shelter and 52 million meals, along with substance abuse rehabilitation programs, after-school programs, and emergency shelter for children and families.
Fight for Good Celebrity Ambassador
As the 2018 Fight for Good Celebrity Ambassador, Candace Cameron Bure will shine a light on the battles those in need are fighting every day.
“Being a mom myself, it breaks my heart to know there are parents struggling to put food on the table and who, during the holidays, also have the added pressure to provide Christmas gifts for their kids,” Bure said. “I hope each person who donates to The Salvation Army understands how important their contribution is. It’s a Christmas miracle for thousands of families. It’s food for the hungry and shelter for the homeless all year long.”
