The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee raised over $450,000 from the 2018 Red Kettle Campaign. The Salvation Army stationed kettles at over 70 locations across the three counties, starting on Nov. 9 and ending on Christmas Eve.
The Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army’s largest capital campaign each year. Funds raised from the Red Kettle Campaign will help support The Salvation Army’s year-round programs and services, such as rent and utility assistance, the food pantry, soup kitchen, shelter ministries, the Boys and Girls Club and more.
“We are so thankful to the generous community who helped us raise over $450,000 during the Red Kettle Campaign,” says Major Pete Costas, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee. “We want to thank all our faithful kettle store locations, volunteers, community partners and all those who donated to a red kettle this Christmas season.”
The Salvation Army is committed to meeting human needs every day of the year; learn more about its year-round programs here.
