Press release submitted by The Salvation Army of the Quad Cities


The Salvation Army is pleased to announce All 12 HUNGRY HOBO RED KETTLES: Easy to Find, Hard to Resist!!

For the sixth consecutive holiday season, The Hungry Hobo restaurants in the Quad Cities will partner with The Salvation Army by collecting donations in the iconic Red Kettles throughout the Red Kettle Campaign and into January.

These smaller kettles, all donated by The Hungry Hobo, will sit on the countertops of all local Hungry Hobo restaurants collecting change and dollar bills. It is another example of a simple act that can help a person or family in crisis. "Hungry Hobo customer donations help us house and feed hundreds of people at the Family Service Center – 15 families for a month to be exact. The Hungry Hobo employees' enthusiasm is a big part of this campaign's success," states Holly Nomura, Development Director.

When you see a counter kettle at your favorite Hungry Hobo location, please give generously and make sure to thank them for hosting the kettle. "The Hungry Hobo is honored to be able to partner with The Salvation Army to help the needy throughout the Quad-City area," said Pryce T. Boeye, President, CEO of The Hungry Hobo.

In fact, 82 cents of every dollar you put into the counter kettle sustains The Salvation Army's life-transforming programs which include shelter, food and clothing for individuals and families with no where else to turn.
