Aberdeen Salvation Army Rrequests additional community support to help reach Red Kettle campaign goal

ABERDEEN, S.D.(Press Release)- With just over two weeks left to go until Christmas, The Aberdeen Salvation Army is asking for the community’s help to push its annual Red Kettle Campaign over the top.

The overall 2021 Red Kettle Campaign goal for Aberdeen Corps is $74,600. Donations can be made at Salvation Army red kettles in the area, or online at aberdeenredkettle.org, or by sending a check to: The Salvation Army of Aberdeen 1003 6th Ave SW Aberdeen, SD 57401   Plus:  volunteers are still needed to ring the bells at area kettles.  People wishing to volunteer can go to registertoring.com to sign up for a convenient location and shift time.   The Salvation Army greatly appreciates the community’s support!
