A number of law enforcement agencies are supporting the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign in Upstate New York during this holiday season.  The event is named Bells & Badges and originated from the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police.

In a release supplied by The Salvation Army Major Ivan Rock said "We are proud to have these wonderful women and men stand with us at the Red Kettle and help bring hope to those who need it most." New York State Troopers, county sheriff's departments and corrections officers are all taking part.  The Bells and Badges event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, December 19th and law enforcement officers will join with other volunteers at numerous Red Kettles around New York state.

Donations to the Red Kettle stay in the community and fund a number of programs and services.  The Empire State Division of The Salvation Army covers 48 counties throughout the upstate New York area and in Sayre, Pa.
