A person with a generous soul and deep pockets has again “struck” the Salvation Army's Red Kettle at the K-Mart on Battlefield Parkway Tuesday with a sizable donation.


Fifty $100 bills were deposited, along with a handwritten note, stating “May the peace of Christ be with you always.  Please give and give generously!”


“We are always surprised and always grateful when we see such a significant gift in our Red Kettles,” states Major Algerome Newsome, Salvation Army Area Commander of the Greater Chattanooga Area. “We are celebrating this gift, but also know we have a long way to go before reaching our goal of $450,000.00.”


Donations can be made to any of the Salvation Army's local Red Kettles,
online at
csarmy.org
or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.


Checks can be mailed to The Salvation Army at 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403.  All donations remain local to assist with local needs.
