Millions of Americans – including thousands of individuals and families right here in North lowa – are still experiencing the ongoing financial and emotional impact of the pandemic as they struggle to recover and stay in their homes.
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), homelessness increased nationally between 2019 and 2020, particularly among families.
Despite the significant challenges still ahead of us, we still have hope – which is exactly why The Salvation Army‘s Christmas theme “Love Beyond” is so appropriate for 2022.
The Salvation Army of North lowa is working hard to develop creative ways and partnerships that support the most vulnerable in our communities.
In an effort to “Love Beyond” our bellringing season will start a week early this year. Kettles will be out Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. starting Friday, November 11th and going until 4 p.m. om Christmas Eve (excluding Thanksgiving Day). If you or your group would like to donate your time to man a kettle, please go to Registertoring.com or call our office at (641)424–4031. You can also give at Mason CityRed Kelltle.org
