Three-year-old Keira Ellis places coins into a Salvation Army donation kettle under the watchful eye of Captain Matt Satterlee of the Salvation Army. Saterlee will be ringing a bell in front of the Massaponax Walmart in Fredericksburg, VA – starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, December 22, 2011 – for 24 hours to help offset a shortfall in the local campaign’s $150,000 kettle campaign goal.
