Red Kettle Kick-Off
The Salvation Army Greater Philadelphia will be soon be kicking off its annual Red Kettle fundraiser throughout the region! Stay tuned for our announcement of the upcoming Red Kettle Kick-Off event date, time and location!
The Red Kettle campaign raises funds for The Salvation Army's vital programs and services that support Philadelphians in need year-round, not just in the winter. Last year, the 14th Annual Christmas Kettle Cook-Off event took place at Liberty Place in Philadlephia. Local television personalities and other supporters of The Salvation Army served soup to help raise awareness of the fundraising effort to continue to provide for individuals and families in need. The event featured soup made by The Salvation Army Soup's On! Project culinary arts job training and placement program. Live Christmas music was performed by a Salvation Army brass ensemble. The Red Kettle Kick-Off culminated in a $25,000 check presentation from Herr's in support of The Salvation Army Greater Philadelphia's after-school programs promoting health, wellness and education for children from low socio-economic backgrounds thoughout Philadelphia.
