Red Kettles are a Christmas force. But have you ever wondered who started the Red Kettle tradition, where, and why? Wonder no more. Below is a short history of the Salvation Army Red Kettle, one of the most timeless and successful Christmas fundraising tools of all time.
Today is a global day dedicated to giving back called Giving Tuesday. Founded in 2012, this comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday to remind folks to give back to their communities and celebrate generosity. The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga hopes that with 544 Angels still needing to be adopted, neighbors will celebrate Giving Tuesday by adopting Angels from The Salvation Army Angel Trees located in each area mall or give to the Red Kettles throughout the city.
A visit from Secret Santa is timely for The Salvation Army since funds have been stretched due to the cold temperatures and opening shelter. Thirty-six one hundred dollar bills were donated on Saturday, November 22, at the Highway 27 Big Lots Red Kettle.
