The Salvation Army of Canandaigua will partner with Canandaigua National Bank & Trust for its annual Red Kettle Christmas fundraising campaign and bell ringing that starts Nov. 24. “The red kettles are the most visible of our fundraisers,” said Maj. Les Bussey, pastor and administrator for the Canandaigua Salvation Army Worship and Community Center. “The Salvation Army relies on money raised in the red kettles to support social service programs year-round. All donations received in the kettles stay in the communities where the contributions are made to assist the local less fortunate.” Deborah Rought, vice president and community office manager at CNB’s Main Office, again will serve as honorary chairman of the holiday tradition that runs through Dec. 23. “At CNB, our commitment to the community is a large part of our culture and our core values,” Rought said. “We are proud to partner with The Salvation Army and champion the Red Kettle Campaign, again for the fifth year in a row. The Salvation Army is a great organization which helps our friends and neighbors in need. Supporting communities and each other is what this partnership is all about.” CNB will have kettles on Nov. 24, Dec. 1, Dec. 8, Dec. 15 and Dec. 22 at CNB’s Bloomfield Office, 4 Main St.; Honeoye Office, 8633 Main St.; Lakeshore Office, 709 S. Main St., Canandaigua; Main Office, 72 S. Main St., Canandaigua; and Victor Office, 61 W. Main St. “We have multiple kettles around Canandaigua, and we use those funds to support local residents through a variety of programs and services throughout the year,” Bussey said. “Our goal for this year is $110,000, and we are really relying on our community to help their neighbors in need. Whatever amount people put into our red kettles is making change happen in Canandaigua.” CNB started the campaign with a $1,000 donation. Red Kettle funds support ongoing programs including Phoenix afterschool and summer day camp programs, crisis intervention programs, The Golden Spot Senior Center, The Youth and Family Center and holiday assistance programs including a community Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas toy shop and food baskets. The Salvation Army is seeking additional volunteers to ring bells at their red kettles this year. Families, businesses, school organizations, civic groups and churches are encouraged to sign up as volunteer bell ringers. Call (585) 394-6968 to volunteer.
