Red Kettles Ready for Donations in the Northland

Bells are ringing and volunteers are singing for donations to the Salvation Army red kettles.

SUPERIOR, Wis.- It’s the season of giving; Santa Claus is not the only jolly man wearing red, and giving back around the Northland.

Northlanders will now see the red kettles stationed around the Twin Ports. Donations made benefit the Salvation Army. If you don’t have any spare change, the non-profit is always looking for an array of volunteers.

According to the Salvation Army, the eldest bell ringer was 90 years old.

“One of the things that I think is amazing and a lot of people don’t realize this, if you’re volunteering to ring a bell. That doesn’t mean you have to ring a bell,” Captain Jasen Elcombe said. “You can come out sing Christmas carols, bring a boom box, I had a person one year that was hula hooping the entire time at the kettle stand.”

To celebrate the start of the red kettle season; the Salvation Army cooked up brats and handed out hot coco in Superior.
