Captain Kettle makes his debut.

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Salvation Army in Kalamazoo has kicked off its Red Kettle campaign with a new kettle location and a new mascot.

They will have a kettle at a second Hobby Lobby this season.

They are also introducing “Captain Kettle” to the community. He made his debut during the Holiday Parade and appeared to hit a homerun with

kids and families. They will have 25 kettle locations in the Kalamazoo area and you can also contribute on-line or by mail.

Their goal this year is 500-thousand dollars.
