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 16 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The effort is part of the Salvation Army's 2017 Mayor Red Kettle Challenge to see which city can raise the most money. The cities we are competing with include: Arlington, Bedford, Dalworthington Gardens, Hurst, Mansfield and Pantego.
You can help Mayor Trevino win the challenge by making a donation on December 16 at all North Richland Hills Kroger and Wal-Mart locations. Bell ringers will be located at the entrance to each store.
You don't have to wait until December 16 to donate. Visit the Mayor's Online Kettle to donate now, or text NRH to 71777 for a link to donate. Mayor Trevino will also ring the bell for the Salvation Army at the Holiday Magic Christmas Tree Lighting and Family Festival on Friday, Dec. 1.
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 such as the Angel Tree Program and services and resources for families in crisis. Visit the Salvation Army's website to learn more about their services.
"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."
