November 20, 2009

For Immediate Release

Lynchburg, Virginia



This holiday season, members of the Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office are taking part in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. On November 18 and December 16, office members will be soliciting donations while ringing the bell next to the kettle at the Bank of the James Building on Main Street, Lynchburg.

“In keeping with the purpose of our Community Prosecution program, we feel it is important to take part in projects that raise the quality-of-life standard in Lynchburg,” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Mike Doucette. “Not only do we vigorously prosecute persons who break the law but we want to do all we can proactively to see that crime is prevented. Because poverty is a root cause of some crime, we felt it’s important get involved with this wonderful agency that helps people in need.”

The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign runs until December 24th.
