How You Can Help

There are a number of ways that you can join with The Salvation Army this year to increase awareness and help us support our work during the holidays, Christmas and throughout the entire year.   We would love to have you or your organization participate in one or all of the Kettle giving programs below.

Ring the Bell

Bell Ringing is a wonderful way to help spread the cheer of Christmas and to remind all of us to think of our struggling neighbors during the holidays and throughout the year.

Adopt-A-Kettle and Kettle Matching

Would your company or group consider adopting a kettle  location for an entire  week, a  day or maybe just a few hours?  One day is between 10-12 hours and easily covered by a small group.  You can also increase your impact by matching the dollars you raise at your kettle for that day or days.  Most kettles collect between $250 to $500 per day.  We acknowledge your match for the day by promoting your group or organization name at the kettle location.

Corporate or Personal Gift

Your  corporate  or personal gift to the kettle campaign this year will help us make a difference in the lives of individuals, families &  youth here in our community.

On-line Red Kettle

Create your own on-line kettle and invite your friends, family and social network to give to your very own corporate or personal red kettle.  Visit to set up your kettle today.

Counter Kettle

Invite your customers and patrons  to consider giving to The Salvation Army by displaying our Red Counter Kettle at your place of business.
