Salvation Army teaming with Lufkin Whataburgers to reach goal

LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Tis the season of gracious giving. The Salvation Army of Lufkin is still out ringing the bells for the Red Kettle campaign.

They are low on kettle donations because Thanksgiving fell one week later. This leaves only six more days to reach the yearly goal of $125,000.

On Dec. 19 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., they are partnering with all Whataburger locations in Lufkin. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go towards the Salvation Army.

“So, again, we just ask the community to just come and donate,” said Captain Cavon Phillips. “If you donated once, we really appreciate it. If you donated twice, we appreciate it. But you can continue to help us make a great impact on the Lufkin community by giving.”

The Salvation Army is requesting donations at Whataburger locations. Community involvement is helpful to provide financial/utility assistance and clothing for those in need. You can volunteer at registertoring.com until Dec. 24.
