The Salvation Army

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- The Salvation Army of El Paso's Red Kettle Campaign is trying to reach its goal of raising $200,000 by the end of the year. So far they have received almost $160,000.

"Need for financial support is critical because many Americans are struggling more than ever before," the Salvation Army explained in a news release Friday. "One in three people say they are worse off now than they were a year ago, homelessness has grown at an alarming rate, and families are struggling to pay for essential household bills and expenses with more living from paycheck to paycheck than in previous years."

The Red Kettle Campaign started in 1891 to help house and feed people in need. You have until January 12, 2024 to contribute. You can do so here.

“This campaign is about collective effort and community impact,” said Major Floiran Estrada of The Salvation Army. “You can make a gift of any size, and it will make a difference for our neighbors in need right here in El Paso.”
