STAFF REPORTS

The familiar ringing bell ringing and red kettles have been a Christmas tradition for more than 100 years.

On Friday, the local Salvation Army officially kicked off the 2021 kettle drive.

Captain Joseph McPhee started what became the red kettle campaign in San Francisco in 1891.

The money you put in the kettle goes to fund a number of services.
