Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign
Because of COVID-19, we must start earlier
COVID-19 has not only created a bigger need for us to fill, it has also decreased the number of traditional red kettles you’re used to seeing on street corners and at store entrances each Christmas season. In fact, we could see up to a 50% decrease in red kettle funds this year due to several factors, including:
Consumers carrying less cash and fewer coins
More online shopping, which means less foot traffic in shopping areas
Recent closures of some brick-and-mortar retail stores
Our work this holiday season is going to be even more crucial to serve the most vulnerable – regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or gender orientation – in your community.
The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign takes place every year from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve. Our community (Churches, RV Parks, 4H Clubes, Civic Groups, Business, and families) has an opportunity to ring bells at Wal-Mart & Winn-Dixie to help raise funds for the Hardee Help Center. These funds are then used throughout the year to help indiviudals & families in Hardee County that are going through a difficult season of life.
If you are interested in ringing bells this year:
