KANKAKEE, IL – The Salvation Army in Kankakee is calling for volunteers to help reach their kettle goal this holiday season, starting Friday, November 24th. In a bid to spread cheer and support their vital community work, the organization invites individuals, groups, and even virtual participants to be a part of their iconic Red Kettle Campaign.
As the holiday season approaches, the familiar sight and sound of The Salvation Army’s bell ringers will once again grace local storefronts. However, this year, the Kankakee branch has set an ambitious goal for their annual fundraiser, and they need your help.
Volunteering for the Red Kettle Campaign is easy and flexible. Whether you’re an individual looking to make a difference, a group leader coordinating a team effort, or someone who prefers to support virtually, there’s a place for everyone. The ‘Register to Ring’ platform simplifies the process, allowing volunteers to select their preferred time and location with just a few clicks.
The Salvation Army assures that every dollar collected goes directly to funding vital programs and services for those in need – from providing shelter for the homeless to feeding families and much more. By volunteering to ring bells this holiday season, you’re not just part of a fundraiser; you’re part of a movement to bring real change and joy to the community.
For those interested, the campaign kickstarts on November 24th. To participate or for more information, volunteers can visit the Salvation Army’s website.
