Kettle Campaign Beginning in Salina
KSAL Staff - November 17, 2016 6:00 am
Ray Brown has been ringing a bell at a Salvation Army Kettle since 1986.
It’s a sign of the season. The Salina Salvation Army Kettle Campaign begins Friday.
Red kettles and bell ringers this year will initially be stationed at about a half-dozen locations around Salina. Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving there will be over a dozen total locations.
The Kettle Campaign is the organization’s single largest fund raiser. It funds local Salvation Army programs throughout the year. Captain Deb Thompson says that the goal this year is to raise $70,000.
Volunteer bell ringers are still needed. It is a great public service project for groups to participate in. To volunteer, contact Roxanne Matous at the Salina Salvation Army.
Bell ringers will be out accepting donations through December 24th.
