Fundraise For Good

What Is the Red Kettle Campaign?

The Salvation Army Red Kettle has been an American tradition since 1891, helping raise financial support for critical Salvation Army programs and services year round. This campaign allows you to host your own Red Kettle online. You become a vital part of our Christmas efforts when you help those in need by hosting an Online Red Kettle and filling it with donations from family, friends, and colleagues.

Volunteer As A Bell Ringer!


The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve.

Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.
