Almost everyone is familiar with The Salvation Army's Red Kettle that appears in your community at Christmastime. However, in our modern age, many people no longer carry cash and have loose change to donate. As a result, The Salvation Army has created the Mobile Red Kettle program to continue our familiar tradition, but with a modern twist!
