Throughout the nationwide Pink Kettle problem spearheaded by USA Commissioner Kenneth Hodder, the Salvation Military of Broward County helped elevate $1.5 million in 4 hours. Broward County Space Commander Stephen Lengthy and The Salvation Military group rang the Pink Kettle bell exterior the Coral Springs Walmart to safe donations and lift consciousness for the nonprofit’s “Love Past” marketing campaign through the vacation season.
The annual “ringing the bell” custom started in 1895, with all proceeds from the Pink Kettle staying in Broward County and supporting the Salvation Military’s feeding, shelter and social service applications. The Salvation Military of Broward County’s iconic Pink Kettles is obtainable in additional than 50 retail places all through Broward County and thru on-line choices that promote giving safely and just about. This 12 months, Walmart will match donations dollar-for-dollar as much as $250,000 in every area. Donations can also be made at https://give.salvationarmyusa.org.
