The Salvation Army Indiana Division kicks off its busiest time of year on November 9 with the annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign. You know what that means — it’s time for Red Kettles and bell ringing.

Help The Salvation Army reach its Christmas Campaign goal by donating through December 31. Find everything you need to know about Red Kettles here!

Just remember, when you make a donation at a Salvation Army Red Kettle, you’re not just giving TO The Salvation Army, you’re giving THROUGH The Salvation Army. In 2016, through your generosity, The Salvation Army provided almost 114,000 safe nights of shelter for the homeless and more than 468,000 meals for the hungry. When you donate to The Salvation Army, you can expect change.

This year’s Kickoff Event Info:
11:00 a.m. Thursday, November 9
Where: Castleton Square Mall in front of Macy’s mall entrance
