The holiday season is arguably the most giving time of year. However, it also is the busiest. Many of us give back by tossing our leftover grocery store cash and coins into our neighborhood Salvation Army red kettles. Now until Jan. 31, there is a way to do even more—with your own personal virtual red kettle.
Eight Patch sites, including this one, are proud to feature their very own Online Red Kettles.
- Click here to donate via the Sunset Hills-Crestwood Online Red Kettle.
So which community will come out on top in this friendly Patch-off?
There is no registration fee to participate and everyone who donates to an ORK will receive a printable email for tax purposes.
"Patch has been a great friend to The Salvation Army—covering the work we do in Missouri and Southern Illinois, and offering The Salvation Army an incredible platform from which to share our message," Danni Eickenhorst, communications specialist at The Salvation Army, said. "We are a big believer in their grassroots approach to news, and we are so excited to be partnering with them for this Online Red Kettle promotion. May the best editor win!"
Last year, the Salvation Army served more than 30 million people in need, provided 60 million meals for the hungry and sheltered 10 million people.
