BANGOR – Thursday was the Salvation Army’s Kettle Blitz Day — a big day for the organization.
That means Thursday’s donations will be matched. Each Salvation Army location in Maine will be getting $1,000 but it also involves a competition among Maine’s Salvation Army sites to see which raises the most money toward their overall goal in one day.
All of the money collected will stay local and go back to the community.
“All of the programs that we do all year long really depend on us raising this kettle goal right now,” said Capt. Rebecca Kirk of the Salvation Army’s Bangor Citadel Corps.
Anyone who was not able to donate at the organization’s red kettle buckets can head to its website at nne.salvationarmy.org/bangor.
