SARATOGA SPRINGS —As workers on cherry pickers adorned Broadway’s lamps with Christmas wreaths, the Salvation Army launched its annual Red Kettle campaign outside the Adirondack Trust main branch.

“The needs of our neighbors are present year-round, but most prevalently during the Christmas season,” said Salvation Army Lieutenant Michael Dow. “This is why the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign is so important to those looking for help in the coming weeks.”

The Salvation Army of Saratoga Springs’ Christmas assistance program will benefit more than sixty local families, Dow said. The charity’s goal this season is to raise $100,000. The first $1,000 was donated by Adirondack Trust. 

Contributions can be made online, at red kettles stationed in the city, or by texting “Saratoga” to 31333. This year, donations can also be made by tapping a phone or chip-enabled card on one of the dollar amounts attached to the red kettles.

The Red Kettle campaign launch was attended by Commissioner of Public Works Jason Golub, Adirondack Trust Company President and CEO Charles V. Wait Jr., and New York State Senator James Tedisco.

Red kettles will be at the following locations:

Market 32 – Ballston Ave in Saratoga

Market 32 – Route 50 in Wilton

Uncommon Grounds – Broadway in Saratoga

Adirondack Trust – Broadway in Saratoga

Walmart – Wilton

Walmart – Clifton Park

Market 32 – Plank Road in Clifton Park
