Salvation Army raising money with Naples art exhibit during holiday season

The Salvation Army of Collier County will be taking its Art of the Red Kettle exhibit around Naples this Christmas season to raise awareness about the organization as well as money.

The Salvation Army of Collier County invited local artists to transform 13 old metal kettles into beautiful works of art, then asked the artists to share what their inspiration was for their design or their favorite aspect of the Salvation Army. Their answers can be found on the signs at the top of the kettle stands. The exhibit will travel around Naples this Christmas season as part of the organization’s Red Kettle Christmas campaign.

People can donate electronically to their favorite kettle and learn more about the Salvation Army by visiting this link.
