The Bells Are Ringing: Red Kettle Campaign Kicks OffLast Edited:
Red kettles have started popping up around Atlantic City to help members of the community in need.
On Monday, November 27th, the Salvation Army Atlantic City Corps kicked off its annual Red Kettle campaign with a civic luncheon at the Tropicana in Atlantic City.
The red kettles will be located throughout the city collecting funds that are used year round to help families in need in Atlantic City.
Officials with the Salvation Army say donating is a great way to give back to the community — and to yourself.
It isn't just the government who's responsible; we're responsible.
"People should donate because the Salvation Army gives back to everyone in the community," said Michael D'Angelo, advisory board member of the Salvation Army. "Giving back gives you back and it comes back to you tenfold, and more folks really need to give back to the community. It isn't something where it's just the government who's responsible; we're responsible."
At Monday's kick-off event, organizations and individuals in the community were honored for their support and contributions to the Salvation Army.
