In 1891, Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee began collecting money because so many poor individuals in San Francisco were going hungry. During the holiday season, he resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner for the destitute and poverty-stricken. He only had one major hurdle to overcome — funding the project. Today the Salvation Army is providing a holiday meal for over 4 million people and this year The Arc of Volusia is helping that cause by volunteering 1 day a week throughout the 2016 Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. You can support the program participants at the Daytona Walmart from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Thursday and at the DeLand Walmart from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each Friday through December 22nd. Please stop by and support The Arc of Volusia as we give back to the community.
