Headline: The Salvation Army to Host 2019 Community Christmas Kickoff


The Salvation Army of Pine Bluff, Arkansas will host its 2019 Community Christmas Kickoff on Nov. 22 at Simmons Bank in downtown Pine Bluff. The 1 p.m. event will include an announcement of the season’s Red Kettle Community Goal and a presentation of the Angel Tree program, which provides Christmas gifts to local children who otherwise might not receive presents.


During the Kickoff, a Simmons Bank check presentation of $7,500 will be made to The Salvation Army’s Captains Chwight and Janai Olige.


The event is open to the community and anyone interested in volunteering and supporting the work and mission of the Salvation Army is encouraged to attend.


To volunteer for the Red Kettle campaign, or to “adopt an angel” by providing a Christmas gift to a child in need, those interested can call 870-534-0504.
