As a result of not making our goals last year, there was close to 1,000 individuals whose request we could not meet during the 2012 Christmas Season since we simply did not have the funding to do so. With a $20,000 hole--and a year where the economy saw so many new people having to struggle with financial hardships due to the recession, meeting the needs in Southern New London County is going to be an even more critical challenge For the Salvation Army of New London to meet during the Season of 2012.
We are still hoping that we can still meet the challenge however. There are still 17 days of Kettles left, and we believe that our Kettle workers are doing the best they can to help make our goals. We would like to make the general public aware of our Kettles spots--so that you can keep them in mind when you go shopping in the area during the next 3 weeks.
