Proclamations will be presented by the mayors’ offices are as follows: Oswego – on November 1, at 2 p.m., Fulton on November 9, at 7 p.m.

The public is cordially invited to attend these events in support of the Red Kettle Campaign and to help boost momentum for the drive.

With continuing increased needs within the county, the Salvation Army is facing a challenge in meeting these needs.

The success of this campaign is critical to our operations.

The response from the Oswego County community and area businesses has always been strong and is very much appreciated.

All money donated in the Red Kettle stays within Oswego County to serve those in need of assistance.

The Red Kettle Campaign is the Salvation Army in Oswego County’s largest fundraiser of the year.

This year’s goal is $80,000.

Funds raised provide meals, groceries, Christmas gifts and services to the needy in the county.

The Red Kettles will begin to ring the bell November 7 at Price Chopper, November 11 at other locations and November 25 at Wal-Marts throughout the Oswego County (excluding Sundays).

Red Kettles are located at more than 15 locations and volunteers are needed!

We welcome any individual, family, business, organization or church that can assist us by standing at a Red Kettle location.

If you or your group would like to give of your time, please contact the Salvation Army at (315) 207-3362 or email: [email protected]
