The yearly contest kicks off today – Giving Tuesday – Â in order to highlight the importance of caring for our neighbors by donating to The Salvation Army kettle.Â Every dollar raised in our red kettles stays in the community where it was given to help those in need.
This year, Major Butch is in the contest again and expecting to beat his own record.Â He knows the rigors of 24/7 bell ringing so this year he trained and trained hard!
You will find him ringing to victory starting today at the Walmart Supercenter, located at 1120 S Mount Vernon Avenue in Colton, California.
His wife Major Kim Soriano created this adorable video of him prepping for kettle season. Click on the white arrow below to see him in action.

*The world record title is held by a Darrell Tureskis, a volunteer bell ringer!
