The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign is in full swing, and the organization is in search of new volunteers to help raise money.

Organization officials said they are in need of bell ringers across Green Country. Personal protective equipment kits, including aprons, masks and gloves, are available to volunteers.

There is also a virtual volunteer option where money can be raised online.

The Salvation Army said the campaign is a holiday tradition, and their goal this year is to raise more than $700,000. As of Monday, nearly $60,500 has been raised.

“It is our major fundraiser,” said Sara Kleinecke, Salvation Army. “It funds our programs throughout the year, it’s important for us to raise as much money as we can.”

Some of the programs funded through the Salvation Army include the Boys and Girls Clubs and The Center of Hope, for Tulsa’s homeless population. There are also opportunities to volunteer through the Angel Tree and Toy Drives.

Kleinecke said more kettles will be popping up around Green Country in the coming days.
