Albany- Bell Ringers began the first day of their kettle campaign outside of the Albany Mall. It's just one of 17 places kettles will set up around the area. Inside the mall the Salvation Army has also set up their angel tree.

You can stop by the Albany Mall and adopt a child between the ages of one month and 12 years old to buy gifts for during the holidays.

"A lot of the donations we get of disaster we often send that off to the effected area, but the money that we raise for the kettle operation stays right here in this community," says Sgt. Brent Nevers.

"The outpouring of response from this community has just been amazing to me. We've had calls from civic groups, from churches, schools and people who want to adopt angels for Christmas," adds Carmen Claypool.

The kettles campaign will run through Christmas Eve. You can choose a child from the angel tree every day during mall hours until December 15th.
