MOLINE, Ill. (December 10, 2013) – Quad City Mallards players will join the Salvation Army's 2013 Red Kettle Campaign by volunteering as bell ringers tomorrow outside the West Locust Street Walgreen's in Davenport, the Mallards announced today.
Mallards players will ring bells to solicit donations for the annual kettle drive from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. tomorrow. Walgreen's is located at 1600 West Locust.
“We are very happy to have the chance to take part in a campaign that has such a positive impact on so many during the holiday season,” said Mallards president Bob McNamara. “The Salvation Army plays such a vital role in assisting those in need in the Quad Cities area and we are glad to have the opportunity to work together with them.”
The Salvation Army Red Kettles have been an American tradition since 1891, helping raise financial support for critical Salvation Army programs and services year round. Over the years, the Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States – providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry and countless social service programs year-round.
