The Salvation Army of Kent County will be celebrating the beginning of the 2013 Christmas Campaign with two events on Friday, November 15, in an effort to increase public awareness and support for a $1.75 million Christmas Campaign goal – a $50,000 increase over last year’s $1.7 million goal. The donations collected during the campaign will be used to meet the overall needs of the organization’s clients which are projected to increase during this Christmas season.
It began in 1947 because a Marine Corp reservist, Major Bill Hendricks and his wife Diane, couldn't find any organization to donate toys to for children in need. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, over 500 million new, unwrapped toys have been donated for needy children.
Too soon, January will be here, we'll be breaking new years resolutions and again having to work a whole five days in a row! That means you'll soon be taking down decorations and will need need a place for the Christmas tree.
Christmas after Christmas I have a hard time finding good stocking stuffers. You know, those inexpensive, different gifts that make Christmas morning so fun when you discover what "Santa" has left in your stocking.
It can't be ordinary. It has to be unique! That's the trick.
