Woman suspected of stealing Red Kettle

But their efforts in Martinsville are falling short and they're in need of help.

Jason Hughes said most of the funds go toward the services they provide - helping people out with rent, mortgages, utility payments, donating clothes, food and its Angel Tree Christmas drive. The Salvation Army is hoping the generosity continues and they can meet their goals for this year.

Hughes said even though The Salvation Army will likely see a drop in donations this year, a bright spot in the campaign has been a consistent mystery donator.

It is the season of giving, and one Oklahoman gave a little bit more than expected this Christmas.

The kettles, clear plastic balls hanging from a tall, red lanyard, will be at various locations throughout the city, manned by volunteers, until 6 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, Dec. 23).

"We ended up having to fill a good many of them, but we made sure we were very generous and I just know these kids are going to feel really blessed come Christmas morning", Stewart said.

Thanks to volunteers and support from the community, the Salvation Army is making strides to better help families in the area.

Lumpkin helps out year-round at the Salvation Army, and has done so for the last three years. The Salvation Army relies on direct contributions, as they are not funded by the government or the United Way.

The 30-year-old woman stood in the vestibule near the kettle and posed as an attendant for about an hour.

The money raised during the last quarter of the year usually amounts to about 60 percent of donations by the public throughout the year.
