Salvation Army busts out red kettles for holidays

The familiar red kettles and bells are out as the Salvation Army starts its annual drive for cash.

Jefferson City Lieutenant Dan White says the need is year-round.

“We’re doing the same things that we do every single day of the year,” White said. “Our shelter’s been open for 19 years now, and it hasn’t been closed for a day since we opened it in those 19 years.”

The red kettle campaign is just one of the Salvation Army’s fund raisers this year. There is an auction for hand-decorated former red kettles, for example.
