The Salvation Army began its work in Canada in 1882, just fifteen years after Confederation, and quickly began giving hope to those in need in this country and around the world.
The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign has raised funds for more than 120 years to meet its demand for Community and Family services. All funds raised in Edmonton and surround communities stays locally to help citizens in need. The Campaign has grown into one of Canada’s most significant and recognizable annual charitable events.
The Christmas Kettle started in 1891, in San Francisco, by Captain Joseph McFee a Salvation Army officer. He resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner to the poor of San Francisco. McFee set-up a pot and took in donations from passersby.
McFee’s idea spread, and is used by many Salvation Army charities worldwide.
