Salvation Army debuts virtual Red Kettle campaign
LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - The Salvation Army of Lynchburg says it’s adjusting for the upcoming holiday season.
The Red Kettle campaign helps bring money into the organization.
Due to coronavirus, they expect a lower number of volunteers to help with that.
Those who choose to help in person will be equipped with personal protective equipment.
They’ve also launched their first-ever virtual Red Kettle campaign to help with the effort.
“We are offering an online Red Kettle option for those who are immunocompromised, at-risk or just aren’t as comfortable ringing in person," said Hannah Wallace, volunteer and special events coordinator.
They hope to raise $175,000 in this year’s campaign.
