Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign begins Friday
The Salvation Army in Genesee County will begin its annual Red Kettle Campaign on Friday, Nov. 13.
“This year our goal is $70,000,” said Major Robert Kurtz. "The money raised not only supports our holiday assistance programs but also enables us to provide emergency services.
"Last winter we provided 12 men a warm place to sleep, helped 15 families avoid homelessness, and gave away over six tons of food.”
All funds raised during the Red Kettle Campaign are used to provide food, toys and other services to Genesee County residents throughout the year.
Again this year individuals have the option of creating their own virtual Red Kettle online. Money raised through this online tool will be added to the Red Kettle Campaign and be used for Genesee County residents.
