Salvation Army surpasses goal with help from neighborhood

A local Port Huron Neighborhood is responsible for helping to push the local Salvation Army over the finish line in this year’s Red Kettle campaign. The Sherman Woods Homeowners Association says they raised $11,000 for the Port Huron Salvation Army this year by asking for donations from visitors driving through their subdivision.“The response to the Red Kettle drive in our neighborhood was nothing short of tremendous,” said Fred Kemp, president of the Sherman Woods Homeowners Association. “This is the fifth year we have helped the Red Kettle drive and the funds collected exceeded last year by nearly seven thousand dollars.” In total, over $344,000 were raised this year during the campaign, exceeding the Salvation Army’s $330,000  goal. The funds will be used to provide meals, gifts, and toys for some 600 families and 1200 children in St. Clair County.
