  • Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle

As CBS2's Carolyn Gusoff reported, donated toys are stuffed into a Salvation Army space in Suffolk County - each matched to a child with a Christmas wish.

By 11 a.m., fewer than 20 bicycles remained and very few bags of toys and food.

"We are putting out a plea for help", said Kristensen. "It's not a permanent fix and it's not something that can be all the time, but it's definitely there when they need it".

Anyone wishing to volunteer can contact their local Salvation Army.

"When they give at a red kettle, that money stays local", said Ruth Blick, director of community Resource development for Salvation Army Traverse City.

That can be accomplished with a monetary donation or by volunteering your time to help a group that serves those in need reach its fundraising goal.

The Salvation Army still needs bell ringers for its annual Red Kettle Campaign.

7-year-old Hudson Morley from Whalen Corners came to London with his 3-year-old brother Carter to donate toys and money from their piggybanks.

Weekend weather in the Topeka area is expected to be pleasant - with highs around 60 degrees on Saturday. So far, we have raised $250 000 and the kettle goes up until the 23rd [of December].

Payton has a stool he can sit down on if he gets exhausted but said it seems like the more steady people are coming in, "it gives me energy and I can stand up longer", he said.

More than 2,200 applications were accepted this year, proving the need is growing in our community. "We've never had some people at some locations because we haven't had enough volunteers", said Pilgrim. "They get big smiles on their faces and it makes them part of the operation of giving", said Canfield. To become a volunteer, call the Salvation Army of Lowell at 978-458-3396. The Salvation Army also operates community center programs for children and seniors.
