As we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday season, many of us are still recovering from Thanksgiving leftovers, and Black Friday shopping sprees.
But for others this is the season of giving.
The Salvation Army in Duluth and Superior recently started its season of giving, officially launching its Red Kettle Campaign earlier this November.
The Salvation Army offers a wide range of basic needs services in the Northland--from food assistance and housing, to rehabilitation and disaster relief.
In this episode of "Beyond the Headlines," Dan Wolfe sits down with Salvation Army Duluth Capt. Teri Ellison, and SA Superior Capt. Jasen Elcombe to talk about the mission of the organization in our region, and what people can do to help change lives for the better this holiday season.
During this season, officials with the Salvation Army say volunteer help is needed more than ever, especially when it comes to bell ringing for the Red Kettle Campaign.

Dan Wolfe also sits down with Scott Van Daele, distributive services director for Churches United in Ministry, also known as CHUM.
CHUM is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves more than 8,000 low-income, homeless and marginalized members of the Twin Ports area each year.
According to Van Daele, this season of giving sees a lot of donations coming into CHUM's homeless shelter and food shelf. But it also highlights the need that exists in our community.
