When did the Red Kettle campaign first begin?
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program dates back to 1891 with a goal of providing a free Christmas dinner to those in need. The tradition continues to this day, and services have expanded to include things like utilities assistance, addiction-recovery programming, disaster/heat relief, and school supply and toy drives.
How will Red Kettle donations be used?
The Glendale Corps of the Salvation Army proudly serves communities in Glendale. In 2022, the Glendale Corps passed out nearly 15,000 toys to more than 2,400 children. And the Salvation Army red kettles, accompanied by the bell ringing, were placed at 25 locations across Glendale.
Last year, Glendale red kettle donations topped $119,000, money that was used throughout the year to support charitable giving including the Glendale Corps food pantry and other programs.
