first_img“It’s a little stressful, but this community has shown to be very generous,” said Hansen. They collect money providing life-changing services to people in need. “We usually generate 20 percent of our budget during this time of the year so the red kettles are extremely important in our fundraising efforts and all of those monies stay here in Binghamton and in Broome County to service those people here at the local level,” said Captain Joseph Hansen with the Salvation Army of Binghamton. “Oh, I’m very hopefully we’ll meet the goal. I firmly believe this community will step up,” he said. (WBNG) — It’s a sound you know all too well when you’re out doing holiday shopping… Salvation Army kettle bells. If you are looking to donate, you can find kettles and bell-ringers at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Weis, and Price Chopper. “Year after year the volunteer issue is growing, just getting people to donate a couple hours at the stand.” “It is an option for people to come out. And I think as time goes on it will become more and more prevalent as people realize they don’t have to have cash to give,” said Hansen.center_img But this winter, the Salvation Army of Binghamton is at less than 30% of its campaign fundraising goal, with only about two weeks left. Hansen thinks an upcoming 24-hour kettle will help the organization reach its goal. That’s when one volunteer will be manning a kettle at the Vestal Walmart for 24 hours straight. It’s taking place December 20 starting at 4 p.m. Hansen says it’s not so much about the donors, but more so the lack of volunteers the area is seeing. The campaign ends on Christmas Eve, so there’s still time to raise money. And since the holiday season is about hope, that’s something Hansen is holding onto. He says people have actually been more than generous, especially considering ‘Kettle Pay’ was rolled out this year. That allows you to use your phone to make a donation. If you want to volunteer, you still can. Just reach out to the Salvation Army of Binghamton at (607)722-2987.last_img read more

first_imgLeicester City Council has launched a new cycle-to-work scheme for its 8,000 employees in order to align with business goals around sustainability.The new benefit, provided by Green Commute Initiative, was implemented on 1 April 2019. It enables employees to purchase a bike or e-bike up to the value of £5,000 on a salary sacrifice basis; repayments can be made over a maximum 48-month period.Green Commute Initiative estimates that this benefit structure could save employees 32% compared to the traditional cost of buying a bike.The scheme aligns with Leicester City Council’s goal to create a sustainable city. Using guidance from international expert Brian Deegan, the council has outlined five key objectives for this approach: reduce congestion, improve journey times, improve air quality and reduce noise, reduce carbon emissions and improve quality of life.
