Salvation Army Red Kettles that are seen on street corners and in front of stores during the Christmas season, are perhaps the most quickly recognized symbol of The Salvation Army. The many "bellringers" who help ring and encourage donations are quiet heroes to the communities they serve.

Donations in The Salvation Army's red kettles are used locally to provide services and programs in benefit to the community in which the money is collected.

These funds may support soup kitchens and transitional shelter for the homeless, activities and programs for at-risk children, care and essential services for seniors, and other important programs.
