Community

(WFRV) – ‘Tis the season for giving and after a difficult year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Salvation Army in Green Bay and the Fox Cities is ready for a new year of giving back to the community.

Both groups’ Christmas campaigns are kicking off in November with various events. The Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay will kick off its Christmas Campaign on November 9 with bellringers at Fleet Farm Green Bay West. There were local celebrity bell ringers throughout the day as well, like Mayor Eric Genrich and Green Bay Police Chief Chris Davis. Green Bay has also opened its virtual red kettle, which allows people to donate anywhere at any time and their Registry for Good which is the Angel Tree program that will give local children and families gifts for the holiday season.

Salvation Army Fox Cities will have a Red Kettle Kick-off on November 19 with the Community Foundation of the Fox Valley Region as a Match Day Sponsor. They will be matching up to $50,000 on that day. On November 27, the Salvation Army Fox Cities will have an official kick-off to the red kettle campaign season at Houdini Plaza in Appleton where Fox Cities Sings will perform, Mayor Jake Woodford and the Salvation Army Majors will be speaking. Similar to the Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay, they are hosting a Walmart Registry for Good, which you can find the link here.

Salvation Army Fox Cities has a Christmas Campaign goal of raising $1,125,000 and Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay has a goal of raising $1,396,000 – combined they are hoping to raise $2,521,000 for local communities.
