Thank you for YOUR community support. Through your efforts we were able to raise $1,309.12 for The Salvation Army at Roth’s Sunnyslope Fresh Food Market.
“We are so grateful for the generous donation of your time during the holiday season with volunteer bell-ringing. Funds raised stay in our community. Your commitment goes farther than you may realize.  The Salvation Army serves thousands of people in need in Marion & Polk Counties each year.  In these two counties, we operate the Lighthouse Transitional Living Shelter, Family Services (Food, Rental, Utilities, Financial Assistance), and the Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center” said Sandra Solis, Salvation Army Captain. The Salvation Army helps more than 4.5 million people during the holidays.
Ceekside Rotarians had a lot of fun, seeing neighbors and friends while ringing the bell and handing out candy canes to the children in our community.  
"We are all in this together and look forward to helping the Salvation Army serve our community in the future. We would especially like to thank Roth's Fresh Food Market and Manager Lori. They are such a joy to work with at this busy time of the year, " noted Creekside Rotarian Maria Mokrai 
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign dates back to 1891 when Salvation Army Capt. Joseph McFee wanted to address San Francisco’s poverty and hunger issues during the holidays.  To fund his goal of feeding 1,000 people and inspired by a similar bucket he once saw as a sailor in Liverpool, England, McFee placed a pot at Oakland Ferry Landing with a sign that read, keep the pot boiling” and it’s become a way people can quickly demonstrate their concern and their love for others in the community.
