Hickman comments that they have had a tremendous response from the community both in terms of giving and volunteering, yet the final week before Christmas is usually when the Kettle campaign makes up to 50 percent of their fundraising income. "So we count the kettles the next morning, find her ring, gave it to her and she gave us a $100 donation". The toys were provided through the Toys for Tots drive and food through the West Ohio Food Bank.
