Firefighters Spread Holiday Cheer During Annual Red Kettle Campaign, Raise Close to $300


Battalion Chief Terry Munro and Firefighters from Station 24 (Overlook/Swan Island)

The Salvation Army bells in downtown Portland have been ringing a little brighter and louder during the 2011 Red Kettle Campaign!

Even Elvis stopped by to ring bells with the Firefighters from Station 5 (Hillsdale)

Firefighters from Station 5 (Hillsdale), 18 (Multnomah Village), 21 (Eastbank Hawthorne), and 24 (Overlook/Swan Island) took over a corner this past Tuesday outside the downtown Nordstrom store, donned red aprons and turnouts, and rang bells to support The Salvation Army. 

In three hours, the firefighters raised close to $300 in donations from passerbys.  Just a week early, Fire Chief John Klum rang Salvation Army bells in a friendly competition against Police Chief Mike Reese, raising over $1,300.  Learn more here.

All funds donated to The Salvation Army during the bell ringing will directly benefit the life of someone in need.  From domestic violence to homelessness to utility and food assistance, The Salvation Army has a service that will meet these needs.  In Portland, thanks to the generous donations of shoppers and passer-bys, the kettles raise around $600,000.  This is a continual need that must be met in order to continue providing these essential services year-round to those who need it.
