Hope Marches On This Christmas

Through your generosity, Hope Marches On this Christmas for those in the most need in our community!

Every year, parents must choose between giving their children gifts or paying bills. Individuals facing poverty often spend the holidays without the warmth of a shared meal or even a support system.

The holidays bring added financial and emotional stress to families and individuals living in poverty. From gifts for children in need to special meals for those who would otherwise go without fellowship on the holidays and meeting other basic needs - we aim to bring joy back into the season.

The Salvation Army helps make spirits brighter at Christmas through:

Red Box Program

The Salvation Army’s Red Box Program provides local families in need with food for Christmas breakfast, a traditional turkey dinner and even a game for the family to enjoy. Last year more than 6,400 families received a Red Box full of food.

Angel Tree

Companies, churches and other groups are needed to host an Angel Tree Toy Drive. Collected toys are distributed to local children through our Christmas Cheer program. Last year more than 11,000 children received new toys.

Red Kettles

Help us cover over 20,000 hours of bell ringing at Red Kettles this season!  The Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army's single biggest fundraiser.  Funds raised support year-round programming.  We need individuals, volunteer groups, families, churches, and businesses to make the campaign a success.  

Ring the Bell

For more information, contact CentralOhioKettles@use.SalvationArmy.org.

Virtual Red Kettle

Another way to support the Red Kettle effort is to host a Virtual/Mobile Kettle.  Friends, family and colleagues can donate to your Kettle from their keyboard or phone.
