The Salvation Army Kicks Off Christmas Season with Virtual Red Kettle Ball Nov. 5

Become a Red Kettle Ball Sponsor like Sofa City in Fort Smith.

The Salvation Army will kick off its 2020 Christmas Red Kettle Drive with a Virtual Red Kettle Ball on November 5th at noon and at 6:30pm. Visit for information on how to help #RescueChristmas. The Salvation Army’s largest annual fundraiser, The Red Kettle Drive, enables the organization to serve thousands of people in the River Valley year-round.

The Red Kettle Drive runs from November 9 through Dec. 23. Bell Ringers will be stationed at locations throughout the River Valley including Walmart, Sam’s, Hobby Lobby, and Harps.

How You Can Help: Whether you donate your spare time or spare change, the Red Kettle Drive is a way to give back this holiday season. Individuals may support the year-round work of The Salvation Army by bringing monetary donations to any of the kettle locations or by becoming a volunteer bell ringer. Volunteers keep the Salvation Army from having to hire bell ringers, a cost that can quickly add up. The more people that agree to volunteer, the more money that can be used to DO THE MOST GOOD.

Individuals aren’t the only ones who can volunteer –clubs and businesses can too.

Reach out to your community by signing up your business to host a kettle for a week or a day. Show your customers how much you care for your community by matching dollars collected at your business. Need service project hours for your organization? Sign up to ring bells for the Salvation Army. Visit or Contact Susan Adams at 479-285-0815 to schedule times and locations.
