The Salvation Army red kettles have a long-standing tradition during the Christmas season as a symbol of giving and acknowledging the good work The Salvation Army does year-round. In Ridge Meadows, 2022 marked our 33nd kettle season. Donations from our Christmas kettles are used towards our community meals, community service and youth service programs. In 2022, we raised an astounding $97,000 thanks to the generosity of people in our communities. Consider the gift of your time in 2023 by volunteering for a 2-hour kettle shift in your community!
