THE SALVATION ARMY TO RING IN CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH THE FIRST DAY OF KETTLES
The familiar sights and sounds of red kettles and bells will soon return as The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command begins its first days of fundraising for the 2022 Christmas campaign in Quincy on Friday and Saturday, November 11-12. Kettles will resume full-time for the season on November 18 in Quincy and November 19 for Hannibal and continue through December 24. There will be no bell ringing at kettles on Mondays and Tuesdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas week.
With multiple locations across the Tri-states hosting a red kettle, now is an excellent time for you, your group, or your organization to volunteer as a Salvation Army bell ringer. Volunteers can register for a two-hour shift or adopt-a-kettle for an entire day. Those interested are encouraged to register online at RegisterToRing.com or contact Tina Lewis by calling 217-231-5626 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds raised from the red kettles remain local to support The Salvation Army and the services we provide, such as holiday meals and toys, shelter for the homeless, job assistance, and more.
The Salvation Army provides various programs and services to assist families in need in the counties of Adams, Brown, and Pike in Illinois and the counties of Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Monroe, and Shelby in Missouri.
