RED KETTLE CAMPAIGN TO KICK OFF AT HOLYOKE MALL
The Salvation Army to Host Holiday Campaign Launch
HOLYOKE, MA- Holyoke Mall is proud to partner with The Salvation Army for their annual Red Kettle Kick Off on Friday, November 16, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. on the Upper Level near AT&T.
The Kick Off event signals the start of the Red Kettle Campaign, an initiative which funds programs and services for thousands of families, youth and senior citizens in our community and across Massachusetts each year.
Bell ringers will be accepting donations at various exterior entrances across the shopping center each day until December 24, 2018. The Salvation Army encourages attendees to wear red in support as their annual campaign begins.
To complement the Red Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army is set to host another annual tradition, the Angel Tree. According to The Salvation Army, this program provides clothing and toys for children in need. “Each Angel Tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child who is in need of a gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.”
Shoppers are encouraged to visit the Angel Tree on Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. beginning on Friday, November 16 and running until Sunday, December 23, 2018.
