Text Size

The Newtown/Bethel Chapter of Salvation Army has undertaken the annual Kettle Campaign for more than 30 years, accepting donations that range from children's pennies to checks of $100. Ten percent of money collected goes to Salvation Army headquarters in Hartford, and the remaining 90 percent stays in Newtown, to help residents in need.

Newtown members of the Salvation Army have a few openings available for residents interesting in volunteering for the 2015 Salvation Army Kettle Campaign, scheduled to take place over two weekends in December.

Families, couples, and individuals are all welcome to volunteer.
