Anchorage, AK – The Salvation Army is teaming up with Walmart stores across Alaska for annual Jingle in July fundraising. Salvation Army staff and volunteers will be ringing the bell outside Walmart stores in Alaska every Friday and Saturday afternoon throughout the month of July. Donations received at the kettles will support Salvation Army Corps Community Center programs and services. Red Kettle funds will help The Salvation Army continue to provide childcare programs, emotional and spirtitual support and services, food support and more in their local communities.

“We’re proud to work with the Salvation Army once again this year as they raise money for our friends and neighbors in need,” said Brad Spitz, Walmart Market Manager for Alaska. “At Walmart, we know the importance of collaborating with organizations that are making a difference, and our community needs more support than ever. We appreciate the Salvation Army and everything they do for individuals and families in Alaska.”

“We are grateful to Walmart for another opportunity to fundraise to continue Doing the Most Good in Alaska,” said Major John Brackenbury, The Salvation Army Alaska Divisional Commander. “Alaska’s annual Jingle in July efforts help our Corps Community Centers continue to provide to families in need whether it is providing meals to the homeless, setting up a kids’ Christmas gift distribution or providing emotional and spiritual support to those in need. Every dollar donated helps The Salvation Army continue providing services to Alaskans in the most need.”

The Salvation Army welcomes new and returning volunteers to help fundraise during Jingle in July. To sign-up to help ring the bell for Jingle in July, please visit or call your local Salvation Army Corps Community Center. Volunteers will be required to wear appropriate PPE and abide by local health and safety mandates.

Last year, The Salvation Army helped over 55,000 Alaskans with food support, emergency shelter, kids Christmas gifts, clothing, childcare and more. Located in 19 communities throughout Alaska, The Salvation Army continues to provide for those in the most need in Alaska as it has done since 1898.
