In what has become a holiday tradition, Hobby Lobby is once again partnering with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. Bell ringers are greeting customers at Hobby Lobby locations across the nation through Christmas Eve.
During the holidays, 3.3 million people rely on the Salvation Army to provide their families with a warm meal or toys for children. Also, donations to the red kettles help the Army provide more than 10 million nights of shelter, nearly 57 million meals, substance abuse recovery programs, after-school programs and emergency shelter for needy children and families year-round.
“The Salvation Army’s commitment to serving the needy at Christmas, and throughout the year, is admirable and their efforts give hope to millions,” stated Mart Green, Chief Strategy Officer for Hobby Lobby. “We are pleased to once again partner with this outstanding organization.”
The Salvation Army, established in London in 1865, has supported those in need, without discrimination, for more than 130 years in the United States. Approximately 30 million Americans receive assistance from the Salvation Army each year through a range of social services: food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless, and opportunities for underprivileged children.
