Salvation Army Hosted By Sherman Woods Homeowners Association

For the third year in a row, residents of the Sherman Woods Homeowners Association in Port Huron will be providing an assist to the St. Clair County Salvation Army in their annual Red Kettle campaign.  The neighborhood, which is recognized each year for its abundant and colorful Christmas displays and decorations, is capitalizing on the large number of visitors who travel to view the community’s Christmas spirit to give a boost to the Salvation Army’s fund raising campaign.  “Two years ago we looked at this as an opportunity to leverage the interest in our neighborhood’s Christmas displays to raise a few extra dollars for the Red Kettle campaign,” said Fred Kemp, Sherman Woods Homeowners Association president.  “Our homeowners are proud of their displays and have been generous with their time and money to give back to the community.  Christmas season visitors to our neighborhood have also been generous with their contributions. ”  Due to the success of the campaign in 2017, the solicitation has been extended to two weekends this year.  Last year in only two evenings the neighborhood bell ringing raised $2,972 to help with gifts and food for families served by the Salvation Army in St. Clair County. The Red Kettle, which will be located at the corner of Armour Street and LaSalle Boulevard, will be manned by Sherman Woods residents who will continue to be ringing the bell between 6:30 and 9:30 pm, on Friday and Saturday, December 14 and 15.
