Silver bells will be ringing and Santa’s helpers singing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, December 4 as
Bossier Schools faces off in friendly competition with Caddo Schools for the 8th Annual Red Kettle Challenge
to benefit The Salvation Army of Northwest Louisiana.

The Red Kettle Challenge is a favorite holiday tradition for Bossier Schools that brings out scores of students,
employees and their families to man the iconic red kettles in front of more than a dozen locations and
encourage shoppers to donate.

Last year, more than $12,000 was raised in a single day through the combined efforts of the two school
systems, making the Bossier vs. Caddo Schools Red Kettle Challenge the most successful day of giving for
The Salvation Army during the holiday season.

Bossier Schools encourages the public to visit any one of its 13 kettle sites and give generously as the district
shares the spirit of giving. Locations being staffed include:
