Tis the season for giving.  The Salvation Army is now gathering donations for the holiday season.

Angel Trees will be in all Central Pacific Bank locations starting Monday. You can help by providing gifts for Keiki and Kupuna in need.

You'll also hear bells ringing outside of stores this week.  The Salvation Army says every red kettle donation, big or small, helps.

This is a great way for the Salvation Army to raise funds for the many programs the Salvation Army offers across the State of Hawaii.  From our homeless outreach programs to keiki programs to our kupuna programs. Explained Major John Chamness, The Salvation Armys Divisional Leader.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Salvation Army also serves meals statewide from Hanapepe to Honoka'a.  About 800 volunteers are expected to help at the Neal Blaisdell Center.  Doors will open at 11 a.m. and is open to everyone.

Well be serving about 5,000 meals statewide and 2,000 meals at the Neal Blaisdell Center. This is the 47th year the Salvation Army has partnered with the City and County of Honolulu to put on a community dinner. Said Chamness.

New this year, the Salvation Armys Hawaii Echelon Chapter volunteers will offer a Family Closet, where those in need can pick up a set of gently used clothing as they depart the Blaisdell.

Red Kettle donations can also be made online at RedKettleReason.Org.
