DuBois, PA (November 19, 2021) – The Salvation Army DuBois Worship and Service Center is thrilled to announce that Paris Uniform Services will match all donations during this year’s Red Kettle Campaign up to $25,000.
Every donation made between November 26 and December 24 will be matched by this generous company that is committed to Doing The Most Good in the DuBois community.
“This is an incredible opportunity for the community to come together to help our local neighbors in need, and we are so grateful to Paris Uniform Services for its generosity and kindness as we head into this year’s Red Kettle Campaign,” said Captain Andrew Spooner, Commanding Officer, The Salvation Army DuBois. “Together, we will let local individuals and families know that Hope Marches On and that they are not alone.”
David Stern, CEO of Paris Companies, has been passionate about supporting The Salvation Army DuBois and is excited to inspire new donors to give this year. This year’s Red Kettle Campaign goal for the DuBois area is $40,000.
“Many people know The Salvation Army for its kettles and thrift stores, but it is important for people to learn that red kettle donations fund year-round programming for local youth and seniors, comprehensive social services, emergency feeding, and so much more,” Stern said. “It is my hope that by matching donations through Christmas Eve, I can inspire others to get into the giving spirit to help local children.”
