LIHUE — The Salvation Army Lihue Corps and Hanapepe Corps are hosting a Red Kettle Kickoff at Kukui Grove Center from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the food court.
Highlights will include performances by the Hanapepe Corps kupuna choir and the Lihue Corps junior choir and hula halau. The program also will officially launch the Red Kettles and Angel Trees for the holiday season on Kauai.
“We’re so grateful for the strong support our island communities provide each year,” said Capt. Bill Simon, Lihue Corps officer and county coordinator for The Salvation Army.
“And we encourage the community to come out to Kukui Grove Center and join us in the ‘Fight for Good’ as we launch our Red Kettles and Angel Trees for this Christmas season.”
Donations to the Red Kettles support programs in the area of the island where each donation is made.
Similarly, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program supports those in need across the island, with donors providing new toys, clothing and other gifts.
