Salvation Army rings up $42,185 in annual drive

The Salvation Army Kettle Drive for 2002, from Parachute to Aspen, raised a total of $42,185. Last year the Salvation Army raised $46,000. It attributed the decrease to tougher economic times. Four service organizations – the Lions, Key Club, Kiwanis and Rotary – volunteered, as well as several religious organizations, collecting at 14 sites and with 15 kettles.

Among the top-grossing sites were Aspen City Market and Clark’s Market, $7,657, and Glenwood Springs City Market, $6,833. Volunteers at the Battlement Mesa City Market collected $4,002 and $3,552 was raised at the Glenwood Springs Wal-Mart.
