The Salvation Army’s Kona Corps will hold a Red Kettle Kickoff event for the 2017 holiday season on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area beach park pavilion in West Hawai‘i.

“We encourage businesses and individuals to help us kick off the holiday season and learn more about our social service programs and outreach in West Hawai‘i,” said Lt. Jose Santiago, corps officer for The Salvation Army’s Kona Corps. “Working together, our island communities can ‘Fight for Good’ and help those in need during the upcoming holidays.”

Funds raised for The Salvation Army’s Kona Corps provide life-changing opportunities for families and individuals receiving outreach assistance through the corps’ various programs and services, including pier feeding, after-school programs, summer camp, among other activities.

Last year, The Salvation Army’s Kona Corps served 4,441 people, provided 48,642 meals and 515 items of clothing, furniture and gifts to those in need.

Table sponsorships for 10 guests are $400 and individual tickets are $50.
