Red Kettle History

Can you even imagine your holiday shopping trip without the familiar “ding, ding, ding” of a Salvation Army kettle worker ringing a bell?

So how did it all get started? The Red Kettle fundraiser was launched in 1891 in San Francisco by Captain McFee with the goal of feeding 1,000 – six years later the idea spread nationwide and resulted in 150,000 Christmas dinners for the needy!

Today, contributions to Salvation Army kettles enable our organization to continue its year-round efforts at helping those who would otherwise be forgotten.

To volunteer to ring sign up here: http://bit.ly/ringit2

To apply for a seasonal paid position visit us at 3180 Estey Ave, Naples 34104.

The Salvation Army iconic Red Kettles are kindness in action!

#RedKettleFact: The money collected at your local red kettle stays local. It helps put food on the pantry shelves, school supplies in our Youth Center and Child Development Center, and helps keep the lights and air conditioning on in our buildings year round.

Igniting our community with the giving spirit this Christmas!

This year the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation has pledged a $100,000 donation if we meet our $325,000 Red Kettle goal!

If your organization would like to sponsor a Red Kettle or make a one day Red Kettle pledge challenge, contact Martin de St. Pierre, Director of Development, at (239) 210-4013.
