About RKC

The Red Kettle Club (RKC) is an opportunity for middle and high school students across America to partner with The Salvation Army and serve their local communities. While the name denotes support of the popular red kettles and holiday bell-ringing, students forming clubs are encouraged to support The Salvation Army’s Mission by volunteering their time and sponsoring various events through out the school year to help those in need.

Examples include: The RKC at Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, Arizona, rang bells and raised nearly $1,400 in one day. They also helped sort gifts in two different Christmas Warehouses, sponsored a drive to collect used goods for the Army’s Family Thrift Stores and held a drive to collect bottled water for distribution through the Army’s relief efforts. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, the RKC at Cape Fear High School helped serve meals at the Army’s Thanksgiving Community Dinner, volunteered to work at the Angel Tree Christmas Gift program, and planned activities at Easter in support of the community services of the The Salvation Army.
