Mayor Mark Boughton and the Salvation Army
Kick Off Red Kettle Season at Danbury City Hall!

DANBURY, CT – Danbury’s Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign kicked off on Thursday, November 8th at 10:30am in the Atrium of City Hall. Mayor Mark Boughton is asking the community to support the Red Kettle Campaign efforts. Students from The Salvation Army’s The Right Place school readiness program sang at the event to guitar music played by Major Israel Acosta.

Kettle income supports a variety of programs and services in Danbury. During the holidays, assistance is offered for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter and includes food, toys and holiday gifts. Throughout the year, assistance is given to those in need through the food pantry, rental and utility assistance, The Right Place school readiness program and family center, and summer youth camp at Camp CONNRI in Ashford, CT.

Message from the Salvation Army:

VOLUNTEER BELL RINGERS NEEDED! The Salvation Army in Danbury is looking for volunteer bell ringers. What if I told you that by giving just two hours of your time, you could feed 12 hungry children? As a bell ringer for our annual Red Kettle Campaign, you’ll help us raise funds and bring hope and kindness to those in need.

This Christmas, join the fight for good. Become a Salvation Army volunteer bell ringer and make a difference in the lives of your neighbors. We are looking for volunteer groups as well. Contact The Salvation Army in Danbury or fill out our volunteer bell ringer form: www.tinyurl.com/RingBellsSNE
