HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's time for the Salvation Army to kick off its annual Red Kettles and Angel Tree program. The organization reaches 120,000 people in Hawaii every year. For Thanksgiving, its volunteers feed about 5,000.
Central Pacific Bank has been a part of the Angel Tree program for 6 years. You can drop off donations at any of its branches and find out the wish of local children and seniors in need. CEO Catherine Ngo said they collected more than $130,000 in cash and gifts last year. They hope to do even better this time around.
On November 23, 2015 at noon in Tamarind Park, the Salvation Army will celebrate the start of the holiday season. Stephanie Lum will emcee the event.
