Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign Rings in Christmas in July

“Need knows no season,” that is the motto of Christmas in July.

The Traverse City Salvation Army and the Red Kettle Campaign kicks off Friday and goes until Saturday—meaning people in Traverse City will be seeing individuals with a red kettle and bell.

Just like Christmas time.

Major Jeff Russel says it’s a way to promote giving even on the off-season.

“It’s just a way for us to give back out in the community,” he says.

All proceeds will be used to benefit local families.
