“The Red Kettle Campaign during Christmas has historically been the The Salvation Army’s primary fundraiser, with proceeds going directly to help families and individuals in need throughout the entire year, not just at Christmas,” said Major Steve Merritt, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army of Wisconsin & Upper Michigan. “With the increase in financial requests made to The Salvation Army and need for community care year round, Christmas in July will help provide financial assistance for more families right now.”
Christmas in July will also include one major fundraising event. In partnership with The Milwaukee Brewers, The Salvation Army will have bell ringers and kettles outside Miller Park prior to the Brewers vs. Nationals game on Wednesday, July 25.
