Cooking guru, entrepreneur and auctioneer extraordinaire, Martha Green served as the keynote speaker at the recent Salvation Army Red Kettle Kick Off at the ESRI Café in Redlands.
The event raised $72,000 of the $100,000 goal. All funds raised will go to help the Homeless, Hungry and Hopeless.
“Please give at the Red Kettles this Christmas Season so that we can help more people in need,” said Green.
Last Christmas The Salvation Army assisted over 1000 families and delivered 5,500 toys to 1,400 children.
The Red Kettles are one of the main fundraisers for The Salvation Army and the funds raised help those in need here in the county throughout the year.
The Salvation Army has served the Inland Empire since 1887, supporting those in need without discrimination.
