Raymond Young, left, Doug Davis, Troy Trimmer and Deborah Greene of the Salvation Army kick off the holiday season's bell ringing Friday on 200 South and Main Street in Salt Lake City. The highly visible red kettles have been a holiday tradition that has served as a symbol of goodwill in the United States since the first one appeared in San Francisco in 1891. This year's campaign theme, "Hope Wanted," draws attention to the continuing hardships men, women and children face in the wake of our country's ongoing economic struggle.
