The Salvation Army’s New Jersey’s Third Annual Kettle Kick-Off began on Tuesday, November 28. It is known as Giving Tuesday, with Red Kettle stands at New Jersey train stations including the Trenton Transit Center and Hamilton.
Trenton City Mayor Eric E. Jackson and Trenton Thunder mascot Boomer were on hand at the Trenton station. Morning commuters at Newark Penn Station and Secaucus Junction also saw the Red Kettle stands. The goal is to raise $1.9 million. Funds collected during the campaign will provide for families and individuals across the state during the holiday season and year-round, sustaining the programs and services from The Salvation Army that help people in need manage their daily lives. more
