An American Tradition

Back in 1891, Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee was distraught because so many poor individuals were going hungry at Christmas.

That’s when he came up with the ingenious idea to use a red crab pot to collect donations. Next to it, he placed a sign that read, “Keep the Pot Boiling.” Captain McFee soon raised the money to feed people in need at Christmas and the Iconic red kettle was born.

130 years later, the money given in the red kettles of The Salvation Army help fund the life-transforming programs and services that provide food, shelter, rehabilitation, disaster relief, rend and utility assistance, and much more for our community’s most vulnerable.
