Vermont Business Magazine Price Chopper/Market 32 is once again playing host to the Salvation Army’s “Red Kettle” holiday campaign at all 130 of its stores in New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The Salvation Army and Price Chopper/Market 32 have been collaborative partners in the communities they serve for more than 35 years.

Last year’s “Red Kettle” campaign at Price Chopper and Market 32 stores raised nearly $500,000 in donations directly benefitting those in need throughout the communities where the funds were collected.

The campaign this year will run November 13 – December 24.

“The annual Red Kettle campaign has become integral to the holiday season – both in our stores and in our communities,” said Blaine Bringhurst, Price Chopper/Market 32 president. “Being able to extend ourselves and welcome our community partners in support of friends and neighbors in need is a blessing.”

“With the cost of living continuing to increase, more families are coming to The Salvation Army for assistance than ever before,” said Major Kevin Stoops, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army, Empire State Division. “Our continued Red Kettle partnership with Price Chopper/Market 32, and the generosity of their customers, makes it possible for The Salvation Army to continue to help keep food on the table for your neighbors in need.”
