Smiles Make the Greatest Gifts

Providing physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance,
to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions.

The Salvation Army's mission shines brightest at Christmastime.


The Salvation Army celebrates the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to the less fortunate members of society. In fact, our gift-giving programs and fundraising initiatives are a direct answer to God's calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced. From physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance, to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions, to spiritual guidance that provides healing and hope, we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.

How you can help brighten the holidays

Become a Red Kettle Sponsor

Support for our Red Kettle fundraiser helps us reach our Christmas Campaign goal.  Reaching that goal means much more than hitting a benchmark; it means we have fuel to power our next year of service in Fond du Lac and the surrounding county.

Businesses, churches, organizations, foundations, schools and philanthropists choose how best to express their compassion through the Red Kettle Campaign, as:    

Sponsors receive appreciation and recognition in many forms, including media exposure from media partners KFIZ, 107.1 The Bull, Sunny 97-7, 96.1 The Rock, AM1170, Campbellsport News, The Reporter, Action, and Next Media.

Those who come to us in need receive a network of resources because the biggest hearts of our community united behind the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign on their behalf.

Bell Ringing

When you put on your best smile and ring a bell alongside a Salvation Army Red Kettle, your kindness changes lives.

Your help makes all the difference in our ability to serve. Bell ringing attracts the change we need to continue our warming shelter, food pantry, youth programs, spiritual outreach, crisis services, sufficiency programs and a Pathway of Hope program that's one of the top in the nation. 

Bell ringers have so many choices:  

Enter Bell ringing Competition.   Groups from schools, churches, businesses, organizations, service clubs, register with us as a team. The top youth and adult groups who cover the most bell ringing shifts will each be award a handsome traveling trophy created by Hoppers, along with recognition as the season's  Outstanding Red Kettle Youth Bell ringing Team and the Outstanding Red Kettle Adult Bell ringing Team. Winners will choose representatives to accept the trophy and be our guests at our annual Civic Lunch and Report to Community
