Paper Kettle Campaign Salvation Army The Store Fundraiser

The holiday season is here once again, and so is our Paper Kettle Campaign! Now through December 25th, you can donate to your local Salvation Army organization anytime you stop in at one of The Store’s 26 convenient locations. There are two ways you can give: 

  1. Purchase a paper kettle for $1, $5 or $10 and sign your name – all paper kettles will be proudly displayed inside The Store!
  2. Place change or dollar bills in the small red kettles located on the check-out counter. Every coin counts! 

Our Paper Kettle Campaign began in 2013. To date, Associates and Guests of The Store have donated over $121,000 to local Salvation Army chapters! Now, in the campaign’s 8th year, the need is greater than ever. There’s no doubt the past months have been difficult for all. The year has presented many new challenges, especially for our neighbors in need. Watch our interview video with the Salvation Army – Stevens Point to learn more! 

What initiatives will your donation support? The Salvation Army works to meet needs in many ways, including: 

  • Providing shelter 
  • Supplying meals and food 
  • Supporting veterans 
  • Offering financial assistance 
  • Supplementing education 
  • Connecting those out of work with job opportunities 

…and much more! 

100% of funds raised directly contribute to the Salvation Army’s efforts in your community. We hope you’ll support our Paper Kettle Campaign and help us relieve needs at the local level. And remember, you can donate your time, too! Sign up to be a bell ringer in your community at RegisterToRing.com.  

This holiday season, we hope you’ll join us in Doing The Most Good, Together.

Help Support Local Pets Here's How

We LOVE animals and we LOVE the communities we call home. This month, we’re excited to support both through our Perks For Pets and Buy A Bone promotions! October 1st – 24th, you can raise much-needed funding for the animal shelter or humane society in your area when you visit The Store...and there’s two great ways to help. No bones about it!

Benefiting Animal Shelters 

The following shelters will receive the funds raised in their respective markets through the Perks For Pets and Buy A Bone promotions:
