Individuals and groups interested in volunteering as bell ringers at red kettles may contact nwbellringing@usw.salvationarmy.org for more information. "The Red Kettle Campaign is integral to the lives of many New Jersey residents, and is made possible, in conjunction with our Platinum sponsors, Prudential Financial, Contura Energy and LENNAR as well as all the other companies and individuals who support our mission to transform the lives of those in need in our state".

With the holidays just around the corner, Christmas lights are going up, trees are getting decorated and those unmistakable red kettles are appearing around the city.

"We rely on 300-plus volunteers every year", Maria Sadowy, events media and volunteer co-ordinator at Community and Family Services and this year's Salvation Army's Kettle Campaign co-ordinator, said.

The Nov. 17 kick off is meant to begin "our fundraiser and to recognize the start of the Christmas season", said Galindo, and is also meant to highlight the need for help.

Still, the Salvation Army is hoping to reach its Huron County goal this season of $18,000.

New to the Christmas Kettle campaign this year is a pilot project, which Sadowy is hoping to see rolled out in December, and will allow the option of digital payments at some locations. It's 365 days a year.

Community leaders plan to come out during the day and help ring the bell as well, including Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring at 10 a.m. This year's goal is also $70,000.

"It is the biggest contributor to provide our funds that give direct assistance to community members", she said.

This year there are almost 140 volunteers ready to assist with the kettles.
