Red Kettle Campaign

In Central Illinois

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.
