Rock the Red Kettle Concert Promotes Giving Back This Christmas & Throughout the Year

A big thanks to all of the amazing people who helped The Salvation Army Rock the Red Kettle in Los Angeles at L.A. Live and online on Saturday! We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did.

Bands Hot Chelle RaeOwl City, and Sonus rocked the stage while artists Bridgit Mendler and Andy Grammer blew us away with their vocal skills. But most importantly, every artist emphasized the importance of giving back to the community this Christmas and throughout the year.

We appreciate the support of special guest and world champion swimmer Nathan Adrian who was interviewed on stage by host and show producer Ned Specktor of Specktor Media about his accomplishments and support of The Salvation Army. And on that note, this very special event was made possible by Ned and his team, and for that we are incredibly thankful!

Only one more week until our 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign comes to an end, so we hope you’ll donate some spare change at one of our Red Kettles while you’re out shopping this week.
