Join the Fight for Good during The Salvation Army Traverse City
Christmas in July Red Kettle Campaign, July 19 and 20.


The Christmas spirit typically brings to mind white glistening snow, sparkling lights, and joy in our hearts. However, the celebration of miracles, hope, family, and community happens every day in our community, not just during the Christmas season. That is why The Salvation Army is inviting the community to show their support during our Christmas in July Red Kettle Campaign, July 19 & 20.

We invite you to Love Beyond hunger, empty cupboards, eviction, and crisis by showing your support during our annual Christmas in July Red Kettle Campaign by volunteering to Bell Ring, donating at an iconic Red Kettle, or to our virtual Red Kettle. Register to Ring

The Christmas in July Red Kettle Campaign raises awareness of year-round programs and critical funds to allow The Salvation Army Traverse City to feed hungry hearts and souls, assist with utilities, help individuals and families stay in their homes, provide area children and youth build strong character, help families break the cycle of poverty one step at a time through the Pathway of Hope program and meet critical and emergency needs of our neighbors during their time of need. Need knows No Season. 

The Salvation Army will be here to help our community members meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges they may be facing. 

All funds raised at the Red Kettles stay local, for local programs, to help local individuals and families.  

We need your help! Join the Fight for Good!
