Thank you for supporting The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Luncheon! We are so pleased to see so many individuals eager to help those in need right here in our community.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and to our special guests Mark Wright and Aidan Lang, and to the clients who shared their stories of overcoming incredible obstacles with help from The Salvation Army.
If you were able to attend our luncheon, you saw several individuals and families helped by The Salvation Army here in King County, through services such as Food, Shelter, Domestic Violence Aid, Disaster Relief, Youth Programs and Addiction Recovery. We hope you find their stories as inspiring as we do.
If you were unable to attend, it's not too late to help! Please consider making a donation, and remember all gifts of $300+ will be matched!
