Red Kettle Club Members Ring in Proceeds for Salvation Army
One of only five “Red Kettle Clubs” in the country is located here in Wisconsin.
This week, Brookfield Central High School students are ringing bells before school to support the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.
“All the money that we collect throughout the week and throughout the entire season will go back to programs of the salvation army specifically in Milwaukee. We have the emergency lodge which is a homeless shelter run by the salvation army and we also have other programs like coats for kids and feed the kids and stuff like that,” says Kajal Khatri, a Red Kettle Club member.
The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign goal this year in Southeastern Wisconsin is $4 million.
The proceeds will support more than 80 programs and services in Milwaukee County throughout the coming year.
