Pekin’s Red Kettle Campaign officially kicks off Thursday, November 16th, 2017. Please join us on the front lawn of Pekin Insurance (2505 Court Street - Pekin) at 1pm as we celebrate the start of the 2017 Christmas Campaign.
Ask representatives from your business or organization to ring bells at a location throughout the Pekin & Morton communities. The group would be recognized by a sign hanging at the kettle so those passing by would see who it is ringing for the Salvation Army.
If your business gets a lot of traffic, allow the Salvation Army to ring at your site or place a counter kettle at your cash register or front office.
Sponsor a Kettle
Sponsor a red kettle at a Gold ($500), Silver ($200), or Bronze ($100) Level. Your business/organization would be recognized by a sign hanging at the kettle signifying that you are sponsoring the kettle on that day.
Match dollar for dollar what a kettle at any location of your choosing would bring in. Your business/organization would be recognized by a sign hanging at the kettle showing that you are matching the kettle's income on that day.
The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with thousands of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.
Donations provide dinners, clothing, and toys for families in need. Financial assistance also helps with basic necessities continuing aid throughout the year.
