Introducing "Flannel Fest"
The Inaugural Red Kettle Gala

Thursday, November 4 • 6pm at the Hagadone Event Center

-----

In 2020, The Kroc Center invested more than $1 million in community outreach efforts including 1,000 nights of emergency shelter, 2,500 hours of free childcare, and 14,000 meals. 

Days before the freezing temps last fall, we purchased and assembled bunk beds for the St. Vincent de Paul warming center to increase the number of individuals they could keep safe and out of the cold. 

During the COVID-related business closure, lifeguards, trainers and other Kroc staff were paid their regular wage to work at food banks, Panhandle Health and the Kootenai County Office of Emergency Management—a total of 14,400 hours of labor were donated to these partner agencies. The Kroc also inventoried, stored and distributed more than 20,000 cleaning supplies and PPE for emergency personnel. 

The Kroc Center has been challenged to continue this increased level of service, in partnership with local schools, Heritage Health, St. Vincent de Paul, and other community agencies. We have challenged ourselves to not only meet immediate needs in the name of Jesus, but to offer the support needed for life-long change. 

The “Flannel Fest” Red Kettle Gala is an important part of our strategy to raise the funds necessary to continue our work.

Will you help sponsor the inaugural event? Thank you for your consideration.

Where The Money Goes

100% of donations to The Salvation Army Kroc Center—at a Kettle, through the mail or online—stay in Kootenai County. Community Center expenses are already covered allowing donations to directly benefit these and other community outreach activities:

$20 will prevent a child from drowning
$63 will shelter a family in crisis
$150 will completely outfit a child with warm, winter clothing
$225 will give a child a week at Camp
$500 will provide Bibles and weekly mentoring for 15 youth
$1,000 will prevent a family from becoming homeless at Christmas

Your donations to the Red Kettles help support people in need in Kootenai County all year long.

Kroc Membership for All

Kettle funds allow us to offer Kroc membership scholarships to those who need it the most:
• Single Parents
• Veterans
• Those struggling with addiction or depression

Scholarship recipients pay a small portion of the full fee and receive access to all the healthy activities The Kroc Center has to offer in addition to the healing benefits of being part of a positive, prayerful community.

Families Feeding Families

Kettle funds will allow us to completely organize, prep and distribute food boxes to our 19 food bank partners throughout North Idaho including Priest River, Post Falls, St. Maries and Kellogg.

In 2020, we delivered over 1,000 food boxes. For February 2021, we’re seeing this same need.

Most of these families are working but struggle with paying monthly expenses including child care, gas, utilities and groceries. 

Clothe-a-Child

So far this year, 43 kids have received $150-worth of clothing and winter gear.

For many of these kids, they don’t have clothes that fit and have never had the experience of picking out new clothes in the sizes and styles that help them fit in at school.

We plan to clothe more children in Spring of 2021.

Raising Up the Next Generation

The Kroc Center annually invests more than $2 million in youth enrichment and mentoring activities. These include summer day camps, after-school transportation, and Mobile Kroc, where Kroc staff help run recess games that are providing positive role models and how to be a team player.

Kettle funds help provide a bright future for our children and make sure young men and women stay on the right path. We are offering a variety of activities so that every child can discover and grow their God-given talents.

Crisis Intervention

In the midst of tragedy, we can offer food, shelter, rent, heat assistance, and other practical support. 

These individuals are treated with dignity and shown God’s love, while seeking long-term solutions to their current misfortune.
