Indianapolis — The Salvation Army kicked off its Red Kettle Christmas Campaign with a public ceremony on November 12 at The Salvation Army’s Indianapolis Headquarters, located at 3100 N. Meridian Street. The goal for this year’s campaign is $3.3 million. The money raised will go toward supporting Salvation Army programs and services throughout central Indiana.

Starting in November, The Salvation Army Red Kettle, one of the most recognizable symbols of Christmas, was at more than 140 locations throughout central Indiana. Shoppers were able to help The Salvation Army by making donations at one of these locations or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

RTR buttonVolunteers gave back to their communities by visiting RegisterToRing.com and signing up to ring a bell at times and locations that were convenient for them. To find out about other seasonal volunteer opportunities, visit our Volunteer page.

The Christmas Campaign doesn’t wrap up until the end of January, so there is still plenty of time to help us reach our goal and support The Salvation Army’s work in central Indiana for another year. Last year, through the generosity of Hoosiers, The Salvation Army was able to provide more than 107,000 safe nights of shelter and 509,000 meals for those in need in our community. With your help, we will again be able to serve our neighbors in need in 2015.
