The Salvation Army's iconic Red Kettles have become synonymous with the spirit of giving during the holiday season. Due to various factors relating to COVID-19, The Salvation Army is anticipating this year's charitable donations to drop around 50 percent. To raise enough funds to provide relief for those who need it now more than ever, they're kicking off this year's Red Kettle Fundraising Campaign early. To tell us more about all The Salvation Army is doing to save the holiday season, Commissioner Kenneth Hodder joins the RTM hosts via video chat.
