Red Kettle Campaign

Thank you to all the Sugar Grove Community who came out to give to the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign throughout the holiday season. Volunteers from all the area churches were on hand each weekend and the week of Christmas to man the kettle and ring the bell. The kettle was located outside of the Town and Country Food Center. The Red Kettle Campaign helps raise donations for those who need it most by providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry, and countless other programs. Again, thank you for your generosity.
