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.
