WHAT ARE THE RED KETTLES?
Money raised through red kettles is critical because it supports the programs and services we provide to the most vulnerable- not just at Christmastime, but throughout the year. Locally, we rely on these funds for programs like our social services, shelters, and more. The Red Kettle Campaign is our biggest single fundraiser of the year.
