For the fourth year, The Salvation Army’s national commander, Commissioner Kenneth Hodder, is challenging Salvation Army officers, employees, elected officials, community supports, and the like to raise more money than him in a four-hour bell-ringing shift December 9. Each year, The National Commander’s Red Kettle Challenge has continued reaching new heights to help communities in need across the United States.
Last year, we soared past expectations and more than doubled our goal, raising over $3 million! We hope to surpass our national goal of $2 million this year, but we’ll need your help. Use the map below to locate a participating location near you to donate. Every donation made during the four-hour challenge helps to raise awareness and funds for your local Salvation Army.
