Last week, members of the Liberty athletics family took time out of their busy schedules to take part in the Salvation Army's "Red Kettle" campaign. The annual tradition saw numerous student-athletes, coaches and staff members take their posts at the Wal-Mart on Wards Road, spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear. 

LibertyFlames.com was on hand to capture some of the sights and sounds of the bell ringing. Head Coach Dale Layer of the men's basketball team, along with student-athletes Casey Roberts (men's basketball) and Kate Corson (volleyball) share their thoughts on helping with the event, in today's LFSN video feature.

The Red Kettle campaign is one of the most recognizable charitable campaigns in the country since its beginning in 1891. Money received from the campaign is used to provide toys for kids, food for the hungry and coats for the homeless. This year, the national goal is to raise $3,000,000.
