It’s hard to believe, but the holidays have once again snuck up on us! People appear to be in a generous and cheerful mood during the season of giving. In fact, a popular donation event of the holidays has returned to stores and various businesses around the Sioux Empire.

It's time to welcome the iconic red kettles from The Salvation Army! Every year, The Salvation Army places red kettles throughout the Sioux Empire outside stores like Hy-Vee for its annual Red Kettle Campaign. This annual fundraiser from the non-profit organization benefits many individuals and families in need. However, now The Salvation Army is asking for the community's help that goes beyond donating.
