Cadillac's Red Bell Campaign Benefiting Salvation Army in Need of Volunteers

Cadillac's Red Bell Campaign Benefiting Salvation Army in Need of Volunteers

Almost 100 locations around the area are available to The Salvation Army's iconic red kettles this year.

The tree, which Salvation Army staffers and volunteers decorated Thursday, will light up Saturday, when people will be invited to don Santa Claus personas to choose a tag with a child's name for whom they will buy a new shirt, trousers and shoes. A tree at Wiregrass Commons Mall has names of children being sponsored by the program.

You can find an angel on the Christmas tree at the Augusta Mall or at the Kroc Center. Campaign coordinators hope that this year, the community can top that number with a goal of $1.65 million in total.

"More and more people are coming to us desperately seeking help", Major Worthy said.

Real Madrid Star Bale Suffers Another Injury Setback
The potential of former Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale always seems to remain unfulfilled at Real Madrid . In four full seasons, he has lifted the Champions League three times and scored 70 goals.

"This program would not be possible without the community's support", he said.

"Every dollar that you raise stays in the community and helps us through the year to provide food, clothing, rent and utility assistance".

Trees with tags also will be featured at every Shopko store in the La Crosse area beginning November 17.

The Salvation Army is one of several prominent charities canceling planned events at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

UK Industrial Production Growth Fastest Thus Far This Year
United Kingdom construction activity is worsening, data from the Office for National Statistics showed on Friday. As well as the sharp fall in September from August, output was only up 1.1 per cent from a year earlier.

The presents will be distributed December 14 at the National Guard Armory at 910 Oak Forest Drive in Onalaska.

The Salvation Army kicked off their Red Kettle Campaign bringing back the red buckets and bell ringers for the holiday season. "There will be sixty locations where the bells will be ringing".

Marseille sack Patrice Evra for kicking fan
Marseille defender Patrice Evra has been given a lengthy suspension for his part in an altercation with a supporter last week. It means he misses Marseille's two remaining Europa League group matches and the knock-out phase if they progress that far.
