Secret Santa Arrives Again at The North Georgia K-Mart Red Kettle with 52 One Hundred Dollar Bills!

Chattanooga, TN – A visit from Secret Santa is timely for The Salvation Army since funds have been stretched due to the cold temperatures and opening shelter. Fifty-two one hundred dollar bills were donated on Friday, November 25, at the Fort Oglethorpe, GA K-Mart Red Kettle.

"We have been busy with cold weather shelter, Angel Tree, serving Thanksgiving Meals and Red Kettles," states Major Robert Lyle, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga. "We are so grateful for this large donation! It couldn't come at a better time!"

Salvation Army still needs volunteers, and monetary donations. Donations can be made at www.csarmy.org  or by calling 423-756-1023 .

Individuals or groups can sign up for volunteer opportunities by visiting www.csarmy.org .
