Volunteers Needed The Salvation Army’s Perth Amboy Corps.

PERTH AMBOY — The Salvation Army’s Perth Amboy Corps. State Street, is looking for a few good men and women.

Through Monday, Dec. 24 the Salvation Army’s 2012 Red Kettle Christmas Campaign will be conducted to raise the funds needed for its various charitable programs.

The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Christmas Campaign one of the oldest charity fundraisers in the U.S. began in 1891 in San Francisco, CA. The Campaign raises over $130 Million each year through the efforts of over 25,000 volunteers ringing bells to solicit loose-change donations from Holiday shoppers, which in turn provide clothing , food, toys, and more to almost 30 million needy Americans.

This year the Perth Amboy Corps has fewer volunteers to staff its Kettle locations throughout its service area of Perth Amboy, Edison, South Amboy and Woodbridge Township.

Anyone interested in volunteering for this important work should call 732-826-7040.
