Friday, November 7, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The sounds of Christmas bells amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Belize City is traditionally the first signal that Christmas is approaching.
Today, that signal was launched as the Salvation Army church kicked off its Red Kettle Christmas Appeal.
It is the church’s single largest fundraising effort and the launch of the 2014 Kettle Appeal was held this morning in front of CIBC First Caribbean International Bank on Albert Street in Belize City.
Belizeans are encouraged to give generously to the Red Kettles as the proceeds of the appeal go towards the annual children’s Christmas party and assisting needy families during the holidays.
Red Kettles will be stationed in front of various business establishments in Belize City, including Brodieson Albert Street, Save U and the Angelus Press.
The Red Kettle Appeal runs until Christmas Eve.
