Savlation Army
Red Kettle Campaign

The Red Kettle Christmas Campaign enables the Salvation 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 2004, the campaign raised over $100 million 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 Salvation Army for food and toys at Christmas, utility and homeless assistance, senior and child care, drug abuse treatment and many other social service needs.

The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Our volunteers are critical partners in helping Salvation Army fulfill their promise to America of "Doing the Most Good." Members of Winter Haven Kiwanis and sponsored leadership programs volunteer in shifts on the first two Saturdays in December each year.
