After the terrible Sandy Hook massacre a week ago, the holiday spirit has dimmed and I've found solace under the covers. That said, the best way to combat evil is to shine a light on GOOD things going on so this Friday's Doing Good Shout Out goes to Salvation Army.
The day after Thanksgiving, you start to hear them as they ring bells outside of shops for their Red Kettle Campaign. Want to know their story? Here goes....
The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign started in 1891 with Captain Joseph McFee, who got the idea to hang a crab pot on the wharf requesting donations for food to provide Christmas dinner to needy families. This year, jcp cares offers two ways to continue this tradition. You can round up your in-store purchase to the nearest dollar or donate your spare change to the red kettles outside our stores. Your contributions will benefit The Red Kettle Campaign and continue the spirit of giving.
So you can shop + feel good about it.
