If you’re a Detroit Red Wings fan, then this one is for you! On Friday, December 8th, alumni and current Detroit Red Wings players and staff will serve as Salvation Army Red Kettle Bell Ringers at four metro Detroit retail locations.
It’s going to be a fun competition for a good cause, as the Red Wings compete against each other to see who can raise the most money!
Autographs from the Detroit Red Wings
Autographs will be available at all locations for a suggested minimum $10 donation, with a limit of three pieces of memorabilia per fan. Those who are unable to donate to their favorite player, alumnus or announcer in person, can support The Salvation Army by texting REDWINGS to 41444 to make a contribution.
