Red Kettles and Ringing Bells

KSAL StaffNovember 27, 2016

It’s a one of the sights and sounds of the season. Bell ringers in front of red kettles, collecting donations at stores and businesses. It’s the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign

Locally in Salina red kettles and bell ringers began to appear over a week ago. They are now at over a dozen locations.

Captain Deb Thompson tells KSAL News that the Kettle Campaign is the organization’s single largest fund raiser. It funds local Salvation Army programs not just during the holidays, but throughout the year. Programs include things like after school programs, providing emergency aid and shelter, and the organization’s signature daily meal program.

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.
