Members of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office volunteered to raise money for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign this Saturday.  Over 50 sheriff’s deputies, confinement officers and staff manned ten red kettle locations throughout the city and county today.  Volunteering on their off time, Sheriff’s Office members have been helping the Salvation Army every December since 2007.  Contributions to Salvation Army kettles enable the organization to continue its year-round efforts to help the less fortunate.

Photographs from the today’s kettle campaign are shown below. WTVW 7 and WEHT 25 interviewed Sheriff Dave Wedding while he rang the bell at Buehler’s IGA on US Hwy 41.  A link to that interview will be posted here after the evening news airs.
