Lieutenant Joe Arthur oversees the kettle campaign in Des Moines and says the money collected is important as it helps families in need during the holidays. Arthur says most of the people watching the kettles donate their time.There are some paid workers and most of them are families who are in need, so they benefit from the whole process. Arthur says they’re still looking for people to help out.Arthur says you can volunteer as much time as you can like, a few hours or a twelve-hour shift.Arthur says the Salvation Army operations across the state are conducting kettle campaigns.
