Spreading Silver City cheer at the Christmas kettles

Last year the Trail Salvation Army Church distributed 283 Christmas hampers

Volunteers are sharing Christmas joy at the Trail Salvation Army kettles until Christmas Eve.

This is Lorraine Farrell’s (right) second year overseeing the church’s fundraising pots, and a first for Ken Leslie.

“Christmas can be tough sometimes for people who aren’t as fortunate as us,” said Farrell. “So if I can do a little thing, and this is a small thing, why not help out and spread a little cheer.”

Money raised goes to help local families and individuals in need.
