Mile High Magazine 11/20/2022 Salvation Army

Guest: Guest:  Major Mike Dickinson The salvation has been around since 1865 but has been in the Denver area since 1887. .  Some people only think of Salvation Army at Christmas during Red Kettle or some people just think of them as a thrift store.  In American nearly 25 million Americans receive assistance from the Salvation Army a year.  They support those in need without discrimination and help in so many ways but a few are providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.  About 82 cents of every dollar raised goes to those programs and the money stays in their community.  There is a virtual red kettle on their website you can donate to or if you see someone outside of the store at a red kettle, you can also do Kettle Pay, just scan the QR code and you can by with Apple Pay, Google Pay, Venmo and Paypal.  Their goal this year is to raise $1 million during the red kettle campaign.            IMSalvationarmy.org
