It's a sign of the season.

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program and Red Kettle campaign is officially underway.

Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory rang the red bell on the front steps of City Hall.

This year's red kettle goal is 200,000 dollars to support local programs and services.

The commanding officer says they are in need of volunteers during the campaign.

Thomas Johnson, commanding officer of The Salvation Army, tells KATC, "We are asking if you want to volunteer, make it a new family tradition, come out and ring that bell, so we can save money so it ultimately goes back into the community."
