Red Kettle Season kicked off November 19th and ended on December 24th, 2018. It took many hours of organizing, planning and training, but our biggest priority was our volunteers, who would stand by the kettle and also stand by The Salvation Army! The Monterey Peninsula Corps is literally surrounded by the most generous community who accepted the role as a bell ringer. We had seasoned bell ringers, first-time bell ringers; We had groups, families and pooches; Musicians and singers, Clarence the Clown and his balloon animals to delight the shoppers. Thank you to all who volunteered for this season- you blessed us more than you'll ever know.
