Mahoney will ring the bell and make the first donation into The Salvation Army red kettle to kick off ‘Kettle Season’ here in Central New York. Last year, the Kettle Chair was Juli Boeheim.

The Salvation Army will have 40 kettles around the Greater Syracuse Area this holiday season. There will also be 100 mini kettles inside corporations and companies.

The Salvation Army’s kettle goal for the 2019 holiday season is $225,000.

New this year, The Salvation Army is rolling out two new ways to donate electronically through the kettles. If you don’t have change in your pocket to drop in the kettle, you can donate with your phone through a ‘tap pad’ or through a QR code.

The money raised through kettles benefits The Salvation Army’s 40 programs here in Onondaga County. The programs help change lives of people ranging from infants to seniors.
