The charity closest to the Byers’ hearts is the Salvation Army. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each of the Caroler figurines in the Salvation Army line goes to this organization that provides help and support to so many needy people around the world. In 1992, the Salvation Army gave Byers’ Choice permission to design a line of figurines representing Salvation Army members. Joyce introduced the line beginning with the Salvation Army Women with Kettle on the one hundredth anniversary of the Salvation Army’s trademark red kettle symbol. Since then, Joyce has created more than a dozen figures in the series. Licensing fees and additional contributions from the Byers go to support the work of the Salvation Army as its ministers to the physical and spiritual needs to anyone requiring its help. And the Byers hope these figures will inspire others to join in the Army’s spirit of caring and sharing. The Salvation Army Women with soup pot is the newest addition.
