Ring Bells Wherever You Are with an Online Kettle
2020 marked the most significant jump in poverty since the government began tracking it. Even though life has since returned to “normal” for some, millions of Americans, including neighbors in our community, continue to deal with the aftereffects of the pandemic. People from all walks of life have been pushed into poverty for the first time – joining millions who were already struggling to make ends meet. These individuals and families often face impossible choices between bills and food, or rent and medications.
At the same time, the landscape of The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign has changed. More people are shopping from home and stores have adapted how they conduct business, resulting in fewer in-person kettle locations.
You can help us keep the bells ringing and help your neighbors in need by hosting your own online kettle! Every dollar you raise will help The Salvation Army of your community as we work to keep hope marching on for those in need this season.
It's easy to fundraise for good online.
