The Salvation Army kicks hosts Red Kettle Kick Off

Red Kettle Kick-Off


Tis the season to see people ringing bells to raise money for The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army hosted its fourth annual Red Kettle Kick-Off at the Santa Barbara Club on Thursday.

The event entitled Help and Hope for the Holidays raised almost $40,000 for local services.

Donors heard first-hand stories about those services.

Nicole Little said, "It goes to a good cause, you know it saved my life, people don't think about the money in the kettle. It saved my life. I needed help and I didn't know where to go and the only people there were The Salvation Army."

Little said the Santa Barbara Transition and Recovery Center helped her get housing, a job, and her daughter back,

She is now on The Salvation Army board.
