Milwaukee Police To Face Off In Annual District Kettle Challenge

MILWAUKEE COUNTY - Milwaukee police officers will face off in the annual district kettle challenge on Friday, December 8. Officers will be stationed at a specific kettle in their district (along with The Salvation Army Chaplains) and will compete against the other police districts to raise the most money in a set period of time. In 2022, the winner was District 4. In total, officers raised about $10,200 for the Red Kettle Campaign.

The district that raises the most money will be recognized at The Salvation Army's Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon and will earn the “Doing The Most Good” Golden Kettle traveling trophy for their district.

The money raised at the kettles will stay in Milwaukee County. The Red Kettle campaign supports several programs and services in Milwaukee County including the Feed the Kids summer meals program, The Salvation Army Toy Shop, the Backpack and School Supplies program, Coats for Kids, Christmas Family Feast, the Emergency Lodge homeless shelter, and the Chaplaincy Program, which works with the Milwaukee Police Department.
