The Salvation Army began it’s Red Kettle Campaign 124 years ago today, in 1891.
Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee was distraught because so many poor individuals in San Francisco were going hungry. During the holiday season, he resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner for the destitute and poverty-stricken. He only had one major hurdle to overcome — funding the project. Red Kettle Campaign was born.
This past Tuesday Momentum’s CEO David K. Mineta and a number of Momentum team members participated in kicking off The Salvation Army’s signature fundraiser – Red Kettle Campaign.
It was also a wonderful opportunity to support Norman Y. Mineta (David’s father) who was being honored alongside Mayor Sam Liccardo and Google President of Brand Solutions, Kirk Perry during the Red Kettle Luncheon. Mr. Mineta was being honored for a life dedicated to serving people.
