“I’ll see y’all this Thanksgiving,” the “9 to 5″ singer says in a video posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Parton is also seen ringing a bell used in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

The Red Kettle Kickoff is the start of the national campaign to raise money for The Salvation Army, which serves millions of people by providing Christmas gifts, food, shelter, and rent and utility assistance.

“Wow! What an honor to get to kick off The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign with the halftime show during the Dallas Cowboys game this Thanksgiving,” Parton said in a news release. “Those Red Kettles have long been a symbol of hope for our friends and neighbors who are facing hard times. My goal is to encourage everyone who can to donate and support their neighbors in need. Every small act of generosity helps, and together, we can all love our neighbors this holiday season and beyond.”

The campaign began in 1891.

People can donate money and gifts, or volunteer for the campaign, plus there are other ways people can help. For more information, click here.
