Red Kettle Campaign

They still need a few good arms: to ring bells for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

The Audubon County Sheriff’s office is looking for area residents to help raise funds for the Red Kettle Campaign by bell ringing.

As the end of the year quickly approaches and the Holiday Season is upon us, the traditional red kettles have become an integral part of the Christmas scene in many communities.

Salvation Army funds can be used for disaster relief or emergency situations during someone’s minor financial difficulty. In the past several years, the Salvation Army funds for all entities have been reduced by half.

In order to supplement these funds, the Sheriff’s Department has contacted several local businesses throughout the county and will be placing red kettles on their counters. In addition to the counter kettles we are offering a bell ringing campaign. Ninety percent of all funds raised through the counter kettles and bell ringing campaign stay within Audubon County for use by its residents.

The Bell Ringing Campaign begins on Saturday, Nov. 30, in front of Audubon Food Land and will continue on the following Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The final Bell Ringing will be on Dec. 21.

The Bell Ringing Campaign is made possible by having volunteers from local businesses, groups, and members of the community donate their time to ring the bell on a Saturday. Bell Ringers are still needed for Dec. 14 from 12-1 p.m. and on Dec. 21 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Dec. 21 time slots may be one hour each, or you can sign up for more time if you wish.
