In 2014, Brookfield Central High School started The Red Kettle Club. The Club’s mission is to provide middle and high school students an opportunity to serve the less fortunate of their communities through programs of The Salvation Army. They serve Milwaukee as well as the surrounding communities. They have over 120 active members and they complete 600 hours of service each year.

Meet Komal Khatri, Public Relations Specialist of The Red Kettle Club. She joined her freshman year after her sister got involved and encouraged her to join. By the end of her freshman year, she applied to be a part of the board and she was given the event coordinator role. She was recently offered the Public Relations role. Read more about Komal below.
