Did you get one of the plastic bags like the one in the picture with your mail this week? It's for a very good reason and one you need to think about before you leave the house to float in a cold boat for the MN Fishing Opener, head to work or go shopping for a Mother's Day present.
Call me crazy (it wouldn't be the first time), but I'm looking forward to another week of wintery mix before we get some warm spring weather in the Northland. It will give me a little more time to do some much needed spring cleaning. If you are planning to do the same, consider donating your clothes and other household items to the Salvation Army.
I started ringing bell (or shaking maracas) years ago for the Salvation Army of Duluth. When my daughter Kylee was old enough she rang with me. It's a great opportunity for family time while teaching your kids the spirit of donating and sharing your time and energy. As she grew older we morphed to wrapping gifts at the Salvation Army Gift Wrap booth at the mall. I know we aren't even to Halloween yet, but before you get too busy with the hustle and bustle of the holidays get volunteering on your calendar. Here's everything you need to know.
On Wednesday, July 27, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson gathered with Duluth City Councilors, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, CHUM and 211 to announce that 211 is the number to call if you need help recovering from the storms.
Whether you like glazed, Boston cream, jelly-filled or powdered, today is a great day to be an American and make friends at the office. It's National Doughnut Day. I truly thought Ken would bring me a doughnut to celebrate, but like Yukon Cornelius of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I got nothing!
It's hard to picture a family living in conditions that are without heat, but it happens in the Northland more often than you think. As our temps drop this week people start to wonder if they can stretch their dollars to keep the heat on in their homes. The Salvation Army has a program to help, it's called HeatShare and you can help. You can give the gift of heat!
They're at it again! Volunteering in the community when and where they are needed. The PIGS Motorcycle Charity Group from Superior will be at the Superior Wal-Mart tomorrow, Wednesday, December 9 ringing bell for the Salvation Army and their red kettle program.
How exciting for the Twin Cities Salvation Army, they received a HUGE donation in one of their red kettles. It was one of the largest donations ever made and the donors wanted to remain anonymous. The check was dropped in a Cub Foods red kettle on Thanksgiving weekend.
You may have noticed that the Salvation Army Red Kettles are out in the Twin Ports. I always try to make sure I have dollar bills in my pocket so whenever I pass a red kettle I can drop on or two in, I know the bell ringer is appreciative. Obviously they are giving of their time and energy in hopes they have a full red kettle at the end of their volunteer shift. In Hibbing, the red kettle stand is empty and the call is out for the desperate need for volunteers.
