Viterbo Rings

for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign

On Saturday, December 7th join other Viterbo students, faculty, staff, and community members as we take over the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign locations in La Crosse County. With ten 2-hour volunteer shifts from 10a-8p at each of the 21 locations, we are in need of over 200 Viterbo volunteers to make this event happen! 

10 locations have been adopted by various Viterbo organizations and groups.  To serve with them, connect with the main contact (listed below).  To sign up individually, CLICK HERE to log into UGetConnected with your Viterbo ID. The red banner labeled "Viterbo Rings -December Service Saturday" will direct you to RSVP for the location/shift of your choice.

Register by Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Spread the word.  Bring the family.  Grab some friends.  Last year, we raised $5,652.14 for our local community in our one day.  This year, we're hoping to blow that total away!  Volunteers will staff the Red Kettles at various locations. While you serve, please wear your favorite Viterbo gear and/or holiday garb to promote the spirit of the holidays and our Viterbo pride!
