The Salvation Army announced a change to its iconic Red Kettle fundraising campaign for the first time in the organization’s 135-year history – launching the Rescue Christmas campaign in September to meet unprecedented needs. The organization is seeing up to a fivefold increase in requests for help with an expected 50% reduction in kettle donations. You can safely donate at all Red Kettles through smartphones with Apple Pay and Google Pay. All bell ringers will be required to follow public health guidelines.
