The Salvation Army "Red Kettle" Efforts Start Soon

The “Red” Kettles will soon be everywhere, or at least we should hope.

One of Georgia’s most successful charity efforts, to help those in need during the holiday season, is the Salvation Army Red Kettle program.

This week on Georgia Works we talk to Salvation Army Atlanta Area Commander, Major Todd Hawks. He tells us job and volunteer opportunities exist for those who want help the needy this time of year.

As we celebrate the men and women of the Unite States Armed Forces this Veteran’s Day we should not forget, far too many are unemployed. A new program at Georgia Tech is the first of its kind to offer classroom training for specific jobs.

Join us as we talk to Dr. James Wilburn, a retired special forces officer who now teaches the VET2 program at Georgia Tech.
