You can hear them in front of shopping stores throughout the country, ringing their iconic bells with a red basket hanging by their side.
The salvation army's red kettles are back, and they are raising funds to help out the less fortunate. What you may not have known is that these donations go beyond the holiday season.
Organizers hope they can come up with enough money during this iconic fundraiser, to last throughout the year.
You can also donate online, by visiting www.RedKettle.org/BangorME. That link will ensure your donation stays in the bangor area.
