    The Salvation Army of Carrollton kicks off Season of Care

    November and December are unmistakably The Salvation Army’s busiest two months of the year. From Thanksgiving meals to toys for children, and ringing bells, too, the staff and volunteers have plenty to oversee.

    For the second year in a row, The Salvation Army of Carrollton will host a drive-thru Thanksgiving food box distribution. Residents of Carroll County are invited to pick up a box beginning at 8am on Saturday, November 19 – while supplies last. The boxes will contain stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn, green beans, instant mashed potatoes, gravy, and more. A gift card for a turkey or ham will also be included with each box. Registration paperwork is not required for this distribution.

    Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. Now in its 26th year, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is open for registration. The Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of Carroll County children each year. Once a child has been registered and accepted as an Angel, their Christmas wish list is shared with donors in our community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys. The gifts are distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree. Parents and/or guardians can pick up at application at The Salvation Army in Carrollton. Registration deadline is Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

    The familiar Red Kettle Campaign of The Salvation Army is now in full swing here in Carroll County. The Christmas season represents the organization’s busiest and most important fundraising time of the year. “We need your help more now than ever.” said Roberta Woolbright, Director of Carrollton’s Salvation Army. “If you have two hours to spare, please consider ringing the bell for The Salvation Army.” Every dollar raised through the iconic Red Kettle Campaign remains in the community in which it was given and makes it possible for The Salvation Army to deliver life changing programs and services throughout the year. The Red Kettle Campaign continues now through Christmas Eve.
