Mayor Oscar Trevino, members of the City Council and other community volunteers will ring the bell for the Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle campaign on Saturday, December 14 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The effort is part of the Salvation Army's 2019 Mayor Red Kettle Challenge to see which city can raise the most money. The cities we are competing with include: Arlington; Bedford; Burleson; Dalworthington Gardens; Euless; Hurst; Kennedale; Mansfield; and Pantego.
Mayor Trevino, City Council Members and other community volunteers will be ringing the Salvation Army red kettle bell and accepting donations at:
- all North Richland Hills Kroger locations,
- all NRH Wal-Mart locations,
- Sam's Club,
- Hobby Lobby,
- Painted Tree Vintage Market.
The Red Kettle Challenge creates a fun rivalry between cities, but most importantly the money raised in North Richland Hills will help fund Salvation Army services in North Richland Hills. A successful Red Kettle season greatly increases the Salvation Army’s ability to meet the crisis needs of food, clothing and shelter in the community throughout the year. Your support also provides Christmas gifts and food to families who otherwise would not be able to afford it. "North Richland Hills has always been a community that gives back and helps those who are struggling," said Mayor Trevino. "I feel confident that with your support we can win this challenge."
Mayor Trevino will also ring the bell for the Salvation Army at the Holiday Magic Christmas Tree Lighting and Family Festival on Friday, Dec. 6.
