Salvation Army gives to others: Nonprofit gives out food baskets, helps children in need receive gifts


The Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign isn’t the nonprofit’s only program during the holiday season.

The Salvation Army also gives out Christmas food baskets and has its Angel Tree Program.

Last year, the Salvation Army gave away about 161 food baskets during the holiday season, said Lt. Teresa Brecto, of the Salvation Army.

In addition to food, the baskets also usually contain a gift for a child, she said.
