Red Kettle Campaign
Thank you to all those who donated to the Sugar Grove area Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign this holiday season. The kettle was located outside of the Town and Country Food Center. Each weekend throughout December the Kettle was manned by volunteers from the local churches. The Red Kettle Campaign helps raise donations for those who need it most by providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry, and countless other programs. The funds raised in the Sugar Grove area go to assist those in need from this area.
