The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign began in 1891 by Captain Joseph McFee of San Francisco as a way to raise funds to provide Christmas dinner to the area’s poor. He remembered collection pots from his days as a sailor and quickly secured permission to place pots throughout the city, thus launching a tradition that spread throughout the United States and around the world. Today, it is the single-largest fundraiser of the year for the Army. In 2009, the Red Kettle Campaign raised $139 million in the United States.
