|Christmas is an important time for most people. It's the time we celebrate the birth of Christ, and because of that, it's a time of generosity and giving. And in that spirit, volunteers from all walks of life donate their time at our Red Kettles. If not for the time & generosity of these volunteers, we wouldn't be able to help the people that we do. They are a vital part of The Salvation Army and we would like to thank them.
We have gathered some pictures from the Christmas season of some of our volunteers into Photo Galleries. Each picture represents either an individual, or a group. Unfortunately, we couldn't put all of the volunteers online but we put a representation of each group.
Thanks again for all your support and we look forward to seeing you next year!
About The Red Kettle Christmas Campaign
The Red Kettle Christmas Campaign enables the Army to provide food, toys and clothing to over 6 million people during the Christmas season and helps more than 34 million Americans recovering from all kinds of personal disasters nationwide.
The Red Kettle campaign, first started in San Francisco in 1891, has traditionally been The Salvation Army's most prominent fund-raiser. In recent years, the campaign has raised millions in communities nationwide, with the nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars all remaining in the towns where the money was deposited into the kettles. The funds raised help support many of the 37 million people in poverty who turn to the Army for food and toys at Christmas, utility and homeless assistance, senior and child care, drug abuse treatment and many other social service needs.
