(WFLA) — A Michigan man is taking the Salvation Army’s red kettle campaign to a whole new level.
Greg Bock is living inside a giant red kettle until the Salvation Army in his community raises $10,000. He’s calling it the ‘ten-k red kettle stay’.
“When I leave this kettle, I’m going home to a warm house and a wife and three kids and a family that’s loving and cares for me, but there are some folks out there that are living in the woods, that are living in their car,” said Bock.
Bock said he’s not sure how long he’ll be living in the kettle, but he’s confident the community will come through.
In the mean time, he’s got a heat lamp and an old school boom box playing Christmas music all day long, plus lots of blankets.
“People who I don’t even know brought me space heaters; people I didn’t know brought me a sandwich for lunch, a cup of hot chocolate. People who I haven’t even seen in Cheboygan before are bringing money to the red kettle,” said Bock.
Bock has raised at least $4000 of his $10,000 goal.
