"There are many in our community who are not aware of the scope of what we do at the Community Life Centre, and so we would like to take this opportunity to share about our operations". However the kettle funds are not just for Christmas but all year-long. The goal for the 2017 campaign is to raise $525,000.

Major Greg Voeller from Salvation Army of Dane County kicked off the Red Kettle Campaign at Pick'n Save West, 2538 Ironwood Dr., on Friday Nov. 10, 2017. Those interested in volunteering to ring bells during the season can contact the Salvation Army at 667-6091. Fjellman said a red kettle accompanied by a volunteer ringing bells brings in far more donations than a kettle sitting solo. That includes providing shelter, purchasing holiday meals and maybe helping a family in need buy Christmas presents.

"My parents always wanted us to appreciate the sentiment that 'giving is better than receiving.' That's really become important in my life", Brantley said.
