Kicking Off Red Kettle Season at United
The United Family Celebrates the Season of Giving by helping kick-off Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign
As the air becomes crisper and the aroma of holiday feasts fill our homes, there’s a collective sense of warmth and goodwill that comes with the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. This year, as we have for many years, The United Family had the privilege of ushering in the spirit of giving with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign kick-off at stores in Amarillo, Lubbock, and Wichita Falls.
The familiar sound of bells jingling and the sight of iconic red kettles are met with smiles and generosity as guests enter the store. Volunteers are bundling up against the winter chill and ready to greet each guest with holiday cheer while creating an atmosphere of compassion and community.
The Red Kettle Campaign is centered around the season of giving. The campaign has become synonymous with the holiday season, symbolizing the power of collective kindness. It serves as a reminder that even the smallest contributions can make a significant impact on those less fortunate. The Salvation Army, with its unwavering commitment to helping those in need, orchestrates this annual campaign to fund vital programs and services.
There are so many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving season. And, The United Family is thankful for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign and the work they do across our communities. The kick-off served as a poignant reminder to be grateful for the blessings we often take for granted, in addition to reminding those to give back to their neighbors.
As we approach Christmas, the Red Kettle Campaign will continue to be a beacon of hope and generosity. It’s a call to action for us to reflect on the joy of giving and the gift of compassion and support for our fellow community members.
Amid the hustle and bustle season, let’s carry the warmth generated at the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaigns, ensuring that everyone experiences the magic of this holiday season.
The Salvation Army operates 7,219 centers in communities across the United States. These centers provide food distribution, disaster relief, rehabilitation services, anti-human trafficking efforts, and a wealth of youth programs. The Salvation Army’s work is funded through kettle donations, corporate contributions, and the sale of goods donated to Salvation Army thrift stores, as well as other public contributions. Eighty-two cents of every dollar donated supports the Salvation Army’s various missions across the country.
