Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

front royal town hall

The Salvation Army Front Royal Corps’ annual Red Kettle Campaign will kick off Saturday, November 18th at 12:30 at the Wal-Mart off Route 522.

The Kettle Kick Off was originally scheduled for Thursday, November 16th at Rural King but was moved.

Funds raised through the Kettle Campaign go directly back to the local community to support those in need.

Each year, the Front Royal Corps assists over a thousand families with rent, mortgage, or utility payments, hygiene items, food, and clothing.

To make this event a success, the Salvation Army relies on organizations to “adopt” days at the kettle and engage in a friendly competition with other groups for bragging rights.

Individuals are also crucial to the success of the campaign as they fill critical scheduling gaps.

The Salvation Army Front Royal Corps supports Warren, Page, and Rappahannock Counties as well as Strasburg.

Kettles will be outside numerous area stores and businesses Monday through Saturday beginning on November 18th through Christmas Eve.

A link to register to ring the bell is available here
