(CBS 58) – The Salvation Army is making changes to its Red Kettle campaign this winter.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Salvation Army says many places across the country where red kettles would be placed are no longer open. This will cause significant disruptions to the organization’s fundraising at a time when so many people are in need of help.

Salvation Army National Commander, Commissioner Kenneth Hodder, joined CBS 58 to talk about the changes that will be made to the campaign.

Hodder explained The Salvation Army will try to get out as many red kettles as possible, but there will also be more angel trees where people can buy toys for children. The organization will also put focus on its website, where people can donate online.
