The Salvation Army will kickoff the 2020 Red Kettle Campaign at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 20 at Collin Street Bakery, 401 W. Seventh Ave.
The iconic red kettles will soon be set up outside of stores in the community and the organization will announce the 2020 campaign goal during Friday’s kickoff event. Representative Ron Wright will be the guest speaker.
“Kettles is shaping up to be very different,” stated Captain Jennifer Schmidt, “This year, we are making a big push for not just volunteer bell ringers, which can be done through visiting our website at registertoring.com.”
Volunteers have the option to pick a physical location and shift they would like to ring and may also sign up as a virtual ringer, which can be done in connection with or in place of volunteering in person.
For more information about The Salvation Army Angel Tree program or other services please contact Schmidt at 903-874-7131.
