The Buffalo Sabres announced today that the Salvation Army will kick-off its holiday kettle season on Friday, November 10, 2006 at the Sabres/Panthers game.
Salvation Army officers will stand with their kettles prior to and during the game in various spots around the arena accepting donations. Sabres mascot, Sabretooth, will also be on hand to solicit contributions for the start of the holiday season.
The Kettle Campaign is a very important part of the Salvation Army and is responsible for raising thousands of dollars to benefit the poor and homeless in the community.
Since 1884, the Salvation Army has been a vital link within Western New York’s human service network, providing individuals - regardless of age, gender, education, ethnicity or religion - with food, clothing and shelter, as well as social and spiritual support.
