Rescue Christmas! Host a Virtual Kettle or Adopt-a-Day In-Person

Save to Favorites

The Salvation Army San Diego Regional Office


Help us Rescue Christmas!
With more people facing hardship this year, the need to serve those most vulnerable is greater than ever before. Our ability to raise essential funds to serve those in need this Christmas and beyond is at risk due to the impact of COVID-19. We are asking volunteers to be part of the iconic Kettle and Bell Program. This campaign helps The Salvation Army to provide food, shelter, and essential services to more than 23 million people each year, and the funds you raise stay in your local community.

You can volunteer in-person or virtually:

  • In-Person: Adopt-a-Day Bell Ringing! Gather the folks you are quarantined with and make the experience your own! You can work with your local corps to find creative ways to raise awareness, like dressing up or playing the guitar. We have multiple dates and locations in your area.
  • Virtually: Host an online Red Kettle! Use your online presence to do some good! Increasing awareness and raising funds online gives those around you a platform to get connected to their communities and affect change.
Join us today to make a difference for your neighbors in need!
