The Salvation Army Watertown brings the red kettles back to Salmon Run Mall for the 2021 Christmas season. The Salvation Army and Salmon Run Mall have partnered at Christmas time for 53 years and this year there will be a giant kettle to give to.
Last year kettles raised $6,500 at Salmon Run Mall. “The money raised from the kettles stays right in Watertown,” said Captain Elizabeth Nicoll, commanding officer of The Salvation Army Watertown. “With the lasting effects of COVID-19, we are working to raise even more this year to meet the increased need for our services in Watertown.”
Local businesses and community groups will, once again, compete against each other in ‘So You Think You Can Ring?,’ a fun challenge to help raise money for the Watertown area.
The red kettles also accept digital payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Venmo, and PayPal. Simply tap your smartphone against the sign or scan the QR code at the kettle to donate digitally.
The red kettles will arrive to Salmon Run Mall on Thursday, November 11th and remain in place until December 31st.
Every donation provides help and hope to those in need, and all gifts stay within the Watertown the community. Visit empire.salvationarmy.org to donate or learn more about how you can help The Salvation Army rescue Christmas this year.
