SAN ANGELO – It’s been a whirlwind tour for the San Angelo Salvation Army’s representatives, Major Stan Carr, and his Community Relations/ Development Coordinator, Miss Janet Sheen, in preparation for its annual, “Fill a Kettle, Fight for Good” 2018 Campaign. After numerous media interviews and turning the calendar on the month of November, finally, the Red Kettle holiday event kicked-off, designated as Media Day which took place in front of the Sunset Mall on the loop side at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, December 4th.

Major Carr, who was accompanied by Miss Sheen, was asked about the $21-dollar challenge that was made by Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott, who donated that specific amount into the Red Kettle on Thanksgiving Day. While the Cowboys played the Redskins on Thanksgiving, afterward the $21-dollar challenge became the linchpin upon which the local nonprofit hanged its hat on to raise $21,000. The goal is to raise a total of $100,000.
Below is the brief 3:23 video interview with Major Carr in its complete entirety. Carr also stated, if a fan can get a friend to video tape the challenge, then follow it up with the Salvation Army’s request, #sachallenge21. 


After the interview with Major, Carr, Mary Jane Williams, and her mom, stopped by the Salvation Army's Red Kettle. Flaco Guapo found out her husband, Christopher, lost his job, so how were they going to provide Christmas presents for their children. "I received a phone call that said my kids' names were placed on the Salvation Army's Christmas Angel tree." " The main Christmas gifts her two boys, Cailean, age 5 and Jamente age 8--needed were clothes and school supplies. As for Mary Jane's Christmas gift, is for Christoper, to get a job. 

Several media showed up for their allotted hour(s). Flaco Guapo Media and Miss Sheen tag-teamed on that first hour, between 10 am – 11 a.m. After the interview with Major, Carr, Flaco Guapo donated $21 and issued a challenge to four other media: Conexión Hispana, owner, Gregorio Gutiérrez, KIDY’s Malik Mingo, ASU intern, Austin Vandiver and his Ram Rugby Club. Also, Miss Toni Brinker, CEO of Operation Blue Shield in Dallas, Texas.

Senor Gutiérrez gave his $21 to Flaco Guapo to place in the kettle for his family/company. The next media to fill in during the 11 a.m.- 12noon slot was KIDY FOX, represented by Senora Scott and Malik Mingo. The 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. slot was taken by K-107 FM La Grande’s morning drive personality, Andrea Solis and 104.5 FM’s personality, Tiger Mike.

Salvation Army Community Relations/ Development Coordinator, Janet Sheen, was assigned a red kettle/ and a bell which was at Henry Diner's location, 3015 Sherwood Way.
