Red Wings players, coach & GM competing while ringing bells for Salvation Army Red Kettle

Detroit Red Wings players, Head Coach Jeff Blashill and General Manager Ken Holland will compete to see who can raise the most money while ringing bells for the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign on Friday afternoon. 

Funds raised during the 13th annual Red Wings for Red Kettles campaign will help support the groups' STRIVE floor hockey program, which helps teach kids the basics of the sport and promotes team-building.

Autographs will also be available for a suggested $10 minimum donation, and there's a limit of three pieces of memorabilia per fan. Those who can't make it in person can donate by texting REDWINGS to 41444.

Check out the players and locations below. Each will be at their location from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7.
