Please view our high definition photos!In 1891, a Captain in The Salvation Army wanted to offer free Christmas dinners to the poor of San Francisco. But how would he pay for it? As he went about his daily tasks, the Captain remembered his days in Liverpool, England. There, donations were thrown into a "Simpson's pot" and later distributed to the poor. Thus inspired, Captain Joseph McFee set up the first Christmas kettle. Today, these red kettles have become a familiar symbol of Christmas. Each year, The Salvation Army assists more than 4.5 million individuals during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, offering food, clothing, toys and fellowship to many who would otherwise be forgotten. Byers' Choice is proud to introduce this special edition of the Carolers in honor of the 100th year of the Salvation Army Christmas kettles. A portion of the proceeds from these figurines went directly to the Salvation Army.
