Adopt A Kettle

OPTION 1: VOLUNTEER

Did you know that The Salvation Army must pay workers to staff the red kettles throughout the season? It’s true . . . because we do not have enough volunteers to fill all of our locations each day, and people in need are counting on us to raise as much as we can during this short period of time. When you volunteer, we’re able to put 100% of what is raised in the red kettle back into programs and services that help men, women, and children every day!

Dates: November 29, 2019- December 24, 2019

Days: Monday—Saturday

Times: Mon.—Fri., 12:00—8:00 p.m., Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.—8:00 p.m.

Full and Half-Day Shifts Available!

To become a Red Kettle Volunteer, contact: Jealixson Jean-Simon,  Jealixson.Jean-Simon@uss.salvationarmy.org 727-725-9777, ext. 104

OPTION 2: SPONSOR

When you sponsor a kettle for either one day or one week, you’ll be helping The Salvation Army raise much-needed funds to serve your neighbors in need 365 days a year.

We have exciting news! When you sponsor a kettle, an anonymous donor will MATCH 100% of your sponsorship! You can sponsor a kettle for one day for $500 (what a volunteer group typically raises in a day), or you can sponsor a kettle for one week for $2,500 (a one-day sponsorship discount)!

During the length of your sponsorship, your name or company will be posted at the kettle, letting everyone know that you are doing the most good for your community!

1 Day Sponsor = $500, 1 Week Sponsor = $2,500

Dates: November 29, 2019- December 24, 2019

To become a Adopt-A-Kettle Sponsor, contact: Jessica Jamieson: Jessica.Jamieson@uss.salvationarmy.org, 727-725-9777, ext. 105

There are TWO ways to Adopt-A-Kettle!

Matching Gifts

Interested in MAXIMIZING your IMPACT? Perhaps even doubling or tripling your gift to The Salvation Army?

To those who want to positively affect their world, The Salvation Army is the charity that maximizes contributions.

82 cents of every dollar donated provides direct services to the less fortunate in our community.

Planned Giving

Our neighborhoods and cities thrive in part because of a pervading generosity. Indeed, the work of THE SALVATION ARMY depends on private individual expressions of support that come our way in countless forms.

Americans continually set new records for charitable support.

In fact there are many ways that you can make a gift. The most common is by simply writing a check or giving cash. Many of these same individuals and families plan today for a gift that comes in the form of a bequest articulated in the Last Will and Testament.

But there are a number of other ways that friends provide critical support to The Salvation Army. Often the way that a gift is made can have dramatic impact on helping to meet the long and short-term objectives of a donor.

Almost every gift to a qualified charitable organization comes with certain tax benefits, thanks to our government’s ongoing encouragement of the private support of charities. However, in many situations it is possible to receive more than just a charitable income tax deduction.

Indeed, certain ways of giving make it possible to bypass capital gains taxes on appreciated assets, significantly reduce estate taxes, and even establish a whole new source of income for yourself and your family.

The professionals in our Office of Planned Giving have been trained to help match your gift with your objectives. They’ll provide you with no obligation, confidential information that will ensure that your gift – whether cash, insurance, stock, property or a gift in trust – is timed to meet your objectives and deliver maximum value.

Your support is greatly appreciated and we are available to provide you with information and assistance in this important matter. If you need wording to include The Salvation Army in your estate plans, creating a life income for you and your loved ones, or in updating or creating your estate plans, please do not hesitate to contact us.

A Prayer for You

Dear Heavenly Father, 

Our need for You is greater today than ever.

As we face these uncertain times,

we need our hope restored.

We need to be reminded of Your constant and

complete healing grace and love for us.

As we reach out to You, we pray that You help us to heal the burdens of our neighborhoods, our country and our world.

Help us be faithful in prayer and put our hope in You.

Teach us what You want us to learn from this pandemic.

Please help us to not take our fear and lack of

control out on those around us, and show

us how to be patient as the world heals.

In these days of sickness, give us the

wisdom to draw nearer to You.

In Your name, we pray.

Amen

Hope > Fear

“Hope is greater than Fear” — A phrase that we live by each day as believers in Christ and protectors of the vulnerable. These days have challenged the entire world and we’re all seeing the constant news of the situation, but how can we respond?

What can we first do together? Pray! MTK has launched a Virtual Prayer Room, open 24 hours and we’re asking individuals, groups, families, departments and corps around the territory, and world, to select 1 hour time slots and keep prayer going. Please visit the Virtual Prayer Room and sign up at bit.ly/VirtualPrayerRoomSignup for your block and let’s keep prayer going nonstop around the world.

Many of you know already that we’ve launched an amazing useful portal called Church in a Box. This portal is a great resource for practicing our social distancing with church at home. We have materials for homeschooling, devotions, messages of encouragement, worship music, tutorials, etc. And we keep adding more and more. Today’s technology offers a unique blessing in keeping the world connected: the “Global Village”. Visit Church in a Box.

Holy Week is this coming week, and we’ll be posting a daily message on the Church in a Box portal, keep checking daily.

Coronavirus Pandemic Relief portal was also launched by EDS/CRD for resources to use and share on social media and disseminate information to the public.

Also, the Emotional and Spiritual Care Hotline is available every day 9am-9am EDT at 844-458-HOPE(4673).

We at MTK are happy to work with people like you and we can’t thank you enough for all the work every employee and volunteer makes working the front lines every day no matter what circumstance. So we want you all to send us your photos on our Facebook page @ministrytoolkit, of you all working in the field, or working from home, online meetings, how you’re churching from home, or where ever you are these days. Together we are an Army near and far.
