MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Jackson County Salvation Army has officially kicked off the holiday season with its annual Red Kettle Drive. Between now and December 23rd, volunteers and staff with the Salvation Army will be stationed at various stores around the county, ringing bells and raising money. 

Last year the drive brought in more than $143 thousand and this year's goal is to beat last year's goal and raise $150 thousand in donations. This money goes toward grocery gift cards that will help feed families in need in southern Oregon. Some of the money will also be used towards the children's gift assistance program. The remainder of the funds will provide the Jackson County Salvation Army with its annual budget. 

Locations will change depending on the day but will have volunteers outside the South Medford Fred Meyer today.
