Manitowoc County Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign
The Salvation Army is reaching out to local groups and businesses in Manitowoc County to help in the 2018 Red Kettle Campaign this Christmas season. Sign up a group and compete against other groups in the county to see who can raise the most money! Not only is it a great experience to give back, it will help The Salvation Army continue to help those in need in Manitowoc County.
The Red Kettle Christmas Campaign enables The Salvation Army to provide food, toys and clothing to over 6 million people during the Christmas season and helps more than 34 million Americans recovering from all kinds of personal disasters nationwide. The campaign first started in San Francisco in 1891 and has traditionally been the Salvation Army’s most prominent fund-raiser. In 2004, the campaign raised over $100 million in communities nationwide, with the nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars all remaining in the towns where the money was deposited into the kettles. The funds raised help support many of the 37 million people in poverty who turn to the Salvation Army for food and toys at Christmas, utility and homeless assistance, senior and child care, drug abuse treatment and many other social service needs.
Manitowoc County Salvation Army Bell Ringers Needed!
Bell ringing is Monday through Saturday from 9 AM – 8:30 PM in two-hour shifts at 14 different sites in Manitowoc and Two Rivers. It starts November 9th and runs until December 24th. The Salvation Army says people are more likely to donate to a Red Kettle that is staffed with a bell ringer than an unattended one.
