Salvation Army Red Kettle Stolen from Grocery Store in Baltimore
BALTIMORE, MD (November 13, 2018) — A Salvation Army Red Kettle was stolen from a supermarket on 33rd Street in Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon and the charity is seeking the community’s help in identifying the individual(s) responsible.

The Red Kettle Campaign helps raise financial support for The Salvation Army’s critical local programs and services year-round, including meals for the hungry, holiday gifts, feeding programs, social services, and educational programs.

“We are not immune to acts of desperation, even with everything we offer our community,” said Captain Ryan Vincent, Salvation Army officer. “This is our season to raise as much funding as possible to help those in desperate situations and this theft will definitely affect the capacity in which we can respond. We appreciate Giant Food of Waverly and the Baltimore police department for all of their help in responding to this incident.”

If you know anything about this theft, please call the Baltimore Police Department.
