The #SalvationArmy's Red Hot Hoops Challenge will be in Allentown on November 5th. This event is a kick-off event for
our annual Red Kettle Campaign. The event will bring together local basketball players, coaches, and community members
for an exciting 3-point challenge game in our newly refurbished gymnasium in Allentown. 
Funds raised through this event support our year-long programs of providing food, shelter, youth education, and other assistance to struggling individuals and families. All donations are tax-deductible.
Help us kick-off the Red Kettle Campaign season and show your support for the event by sponsoring a player:
Fan Club Sponsor - $250.00; sponsors one player
Bronze Sponsor - $1,000; sponsors a team of 4 players
Encourage your friends and family to join you in sponsorship of this Red Kettle Campaign event. The event will be live on Facebook and will also be available on video on our social media pages.
