You can help rescue Christmas for people in need!

With the season of giving upon us, KBJR 6 and the Salvation Army are asking for your help making the holidays bright for people struggling in our community!

The Salvation Army is seeing a big increase in need this year, due to the pandemic and economic downturn.

Last year, the Salvation Army’s Northern Division served 325,000 people. This year, more than 825,000 people could need help paying their bills, putting food on the table, finding shelter, and putting gifts under the tree.

In Duluth alone, that number could be more than 8,000, but you can help make a difference by donating money or time as part of KBJR 6’s Operation Rescue Christmas campaign.

It all culminates during Distribution Week, when people in need can pick up Christmas dinner kits and gifts for their family.


When you volunteer or donate, post your picture to our KBJR 6 Instagram with the hashtag #rescuechristmaskbjr6. We’ll #repost.


Click here to donate or sign up to volunteer.

We need help ringing bells and giving out food and gifts during Distribution Week, Dec. 14-18.

We will be following COVID-19 safety protocols.

Ask Amazon Alexa to donate by saying, “Alexa, donate to The Salvation Army,” then specify the amount.

Give any amount by texting “KETTLES” to 91999.

Checks can be mailed or dropped off at the Duluth Salvation Army, 215 South 27th Ave West, Duluth, MN 55806. All visitors must wear a mask inside.

If you need services or know of someone in need, please contact us by phone at 218-722-7934 or visit

Thanks for being part of Operation Rescue Christmas!
