The Lebanon Salvation Army is kicking off its annual Red Kettle Campaign at the Lebanon Farmers Market Nov. 23, 12:30 p.m.

There, the Lebanon Salvation Army Children’s Brass Band will perform Christmas carols. Also, Lebanon County Commissioner William Ames will be a guest speaker at the kickoff.

The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign taps into the giving spirit of the holidays, encouraging people to donate to help people in need of social services. These include food, disaster relief, clothing and shelter, and more.

“Your donation can make a change in the life of someone here in Lebanon County,” said a post on the organization’s Facebook page.

This year, the Lebanon Salvation Army hopes to raise $95,000 total with Red Kettles placed at various businesses throughout Lebanon County.

Before the Red Kettle Campaign kickoff, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. is Saint Luke’s Annual Holiday Bazaar, taking place at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
