Salvation Army kicks off its Red Kettle campaign

Bell ringers needed for holiday season

The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga To Officially Kick-off Christmas 2017 This Friday

You will see, and hear, them out and about through Christmas Eve.

Starting today the Salvation Army will be out ringing bells to raise money for its Tree of Lights Campaign.

Make A Difference campaign donations account for almost one third of The Salvation Army of McLean County's yearly operating budget of $1.8 million.

Red Kettles set up at Marsh stores end up raising about $165,000 annually. "Christmas is a hard time for a lot of families". Donations made benefit the Salvation Army.

As a result, the Fredette-Marbury matchup was an unlikely one Stateside and somehow a marquis one in CBA circles. After a hard foul, Stephon Marbury and Jimmer Fredette got into an altercation during a game in China.

Who doesn't feel the holiday spirit after hearing this song? "This year our kettle goal is, just straight kettle goals alone is $210,000", said Lt. Matthew Beatty of Salvation Army. Along the 25-state Fight for Good tour, Chris will share updates via his social media platforms (@ChrisStrub) as well as recaps available on his YouTube page. 83¢ out of every dollar given to the Red Kettle Campaign goes back into the community in the form of direct help and services to disadvantaged families.

Encourage friends and family to donate and start their own fundraising pages.

Join the neighborhood gathering on November 17 to officially begin the Red Kettle Campaign.

This holiday season, the Salvation Army of Bryan/College Station is asking you to consider adding one more child to your Christmas list. New, unwrapped toys may also be dropped off at The Salvation Army of York, 30 East King Street, York, PA, during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
