A Salvation Army Challenge



Text Size

To the Editor:

The local unit of the Salvation Army is challenging all local civic, religious, neighborhood groups, and others to join us and our current volunteers to help make this holiday season a joyous one for all in Newtown. We are kicking off the Red Kettle season on December 9th and it will continue for that weekend and the weekend of December 16-17.

You can sign up with SignUpGenius at: rebrand.ly/NEWTOWNRINGS — the Congregational Church of Newtown, the Newtown Lions Club and the Newtown Rotary Club currently participate and we would love to have others join us this year.

We will be ringing in one hour time slots the weekends of December 9-10 and 16-17 at the following locations:

*Stop & Shop

*Yankee Wine & Liquor

*Dunkin Donuts

*Newtown General Store


*Bagel Delight

The local unit of the Salvation Army in partnership with the Newtown Human Services Department, address emergency needs of Newtown residents. Last year our Red Kettle collections raised over $10,000. This money helps to address the needs of our friends and neighbors in Newtown that need help.

This year with the rising costs of basic needs like energy, car expenses, and food the need is even greater. If you want more information or have any questions, please e-mail us at newtownringers@yahoo.com.

Thank you and I wish you a joyful holiday season.

Glenn J. Nanavaty — President

Salvation Army Newtown Unit
