This Christmas season, the Salvation Army hopes UK fans will step up and support True Blue Online Kettle to help local people in need.
Between Dec. 19 and Dec. 31, UK fans can log on to www.onlineredkettle.org/trueblue and make a quick and easy tax-deductible donation of any amount.They will also have the opportunity to win some prizes.
The largest donor will receive a piece of history - a plank from the NCAA championship floor signed by Coach John Calipari. All donors will be entered in a drawing for prizes including, UK basketball tickets, a basketball signed by Coach Cal, UK/UL football tickets, a Keeneland box for a day during the 2013 spring meet, UK sweatshirts, Kentucky Corner gift certificates, Malone's gift certificate and a catered dinner by Selma's Catering in the winner's home.
"The Salvation Army is passionate about serving people in need," Area Coordinator Major Steven Ashcraft said. "The reality is we must raise additional dollars to continue to operate all of our vital services like the Emergency Shelter for women and families, because some disasters are personal. We know the Big Blue Nation is passionate about its teams and helping others. So we encourage everyone to show their UK spirit by taking part in the True Blue Online Kettle."
All the money raised by this Online Kettle will help local people in need. Donors will receive an email receipt within minutes. If online giving is not convenient, donors may mail a check payable to The Salvation Army and designated to the True Blue Kettle. Contributions should be dropped off or mailed to 736 W. Main St., Lexington, KY 40508.
