Salvation Army Kettles Yield Nearly $20K

Salvation Army

Donations to the familiar red Salvation Army Kettles in Jackson Hole this year have been tallied now and total slightly less than $20-thousand.  That, says Smokey Rhea of the local Salvation Army Chapter is a slight increase from 2011 despite the collections being made for one week fewer than the previous year.  Rhea says the needs of the past few years have been steadily increasing and the local chapter of the Salvation Army has been having to dip into its reserves to meet local needs, meaning the chapter is actually in a negative cash flow.  Rhea says the local chapter has two fundraising drives each year which include the traditional kettle drive and another during the Old Bill’s Fun Run campaign.  She points out that, funds are solicited on behalf of the Salvation Army at other times, but those funds benefit regional and national needs rather than local.  Rhea says those wishing to donate to the Salvation Army may do so anytime by contacting the local chapter directly, even when no solicitation is taking place.  Funds gathered by the local chapter remain in the community for local needs.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
