Salvation Army kicks off annual Red Kettle campaign on Thanksgiving
The origins of Thanksgiving as a national holiday: Jonathan Morris
Theologian Jonathan Morris joins ‘Varney & Co.’ to discuss the origins of Thanksgiving as a national holiday and how gratitude is vital to success.
It's that time of year when scores of volunteers can be seen ringing bells across the nation in order to raise money for the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign.
The official 132nd annual Red Kettle Campaign kicked off on Thursday even though the widely-known red kettles have slowly found their way into communities over the past several weeks.
This marks the 26th year the campaign, which spans through Christmas Eve, will off in conjunction with a special halftime performance during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day football game against the New York Giants, the Salvation Army announced. The performance will be the "official rallying cry" for people to donate to the iconic campaign which serves those in need all year, according to the organization.
FOX Sports will broadcast the game.
THANKSGIVING MEALS WILL GO TO MILITARY FAMILIES AND THE ELDERLY THIS SEASON
Each holiday season, scores of volunteers spend time trying to raise money for the organization which serves more than 25 million people in need across the country year-round.
