The Salvation Army DROPS THE PUCK FOR “TORO’S KETTLE” AT BIRMINGHAM BULLS HOCKEY GAME
The Birmingham Bulls partner with The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham to raise funds for iconic Red Kettles
BIRMINGHAM, AL (November 16, 2021) – The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham will partner with Birmingham Bulls Hockey to raise funds for “Toro’s Kettle,” on Thursday, November 18, 2021, at 7:30 PM, at The Pelham Civic Complex, 500 Amphitheatre Road Pelham, AL 35124. The Bulls will take on the Quad City Storm at home.
The Salvation Army partnered with The Birmingham Bulls this year to support the iconic “Red Kettles,” The Salvation Army’s largest fundraiser. Kettle season officially begins on Friday, November 19, 2021, in the Birmingham Metro Area, and dozens of bellringers and volunteers will be out ringing bells at popular shopping destinations such as Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and Bass Pro Shops.
Fans are encouraged to attend the game and take a moment to donate to “Toro’s Kettle.” Online donations can be made at www.TorosKettle.com.
Red Kettle fundraising is so important to The Birmingham Area Command. Red Kettles provide meals to men, women, and children who are homeless or may not have enough to eat. Red Kettles provide food bags and boxes to combat community hunger and food insecurity. Red Kettles support veteran’s programs, pays for childcare, and provides clothing to guests living in our shelter and transitional housing programs. Red Kettles support education and workforce development training and programs, and so much more.
Without the support of the community, we could not do the work that we do, and .82 cents of EVERY dollar stays right here in our community #DoingTheMostGood to help individuals and families in need.
