Monument Hill Kiwanis Club Raises Big Bucks for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign

Monument Hill Kiwanis Club member's had cold hands, cold feet and warm hearts to ensure that the Salvation Army's red kettles were filled throughout the Tri-Lakes area during the holiday season.

For seventeen years the Monument Hill Kiwanis Club has organized its annual Red Kettle Campaign for the Colorado Springs chapter of the Salvation Army. And each year the Tri-Lakes community has overwhelming responded through its generosity and goodwill by repeatedly filling the legendary kettles.

Every day from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, Kiwanis bell ringers were joined by Key Club members from area high schools, Builder Club members from area middle schools and boy scout and cub scout troops to ring the bells associated with the kettles. As in years past, these volunteers provided hundreds and hundreds of hours, in fair weather and in bad, to support this worthy cause.

This year the Monument Hill Kiwanis Club and the Tri-Lakes community are presenting Major John Bennett, director of the Colorado Springs Salvation Army, with a check for $40,700.
