  • The 2013 Salvation Army Kettle Campaign results in the Middletown-Odessa-Townsend area were "outstanding" with a 20 percent increase over last year, said Jim Young, coordinator of the Christmas campaign in the MOT area.
    Volunteers totaled 522 hours of ringing while generating $27,952.
    "This participation from the entire community achieved our best result ever and we want to thank everyone," said Young.
    Of particular note were a significant number of high school students from the National Honor Society and ROTC of Middletown and Appoquinimink as well as seniors from St. Andrew's.
    "Their energy and enthusiasm sparked our efforts," Young said.
    Even with the difficulties of the economy, the MOT community generously supported the Salvation Army's campaign of "Doing the Most Good," he added.
    Contributions can still be sent by texting 80888 SADEL to make a one-time donation of $10, billed to your mobile phone.
    Those who want to volunteer for the Salvation Army's next annual kettle campaign should call Jim Young at 373-8200 or email jimmybacon@yahoo.com.
