Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Salvation Army is trying to get others into the giving spirit.

It's the start of its Christmas Season outreach with the iconic red kettle campaign and Angel Tree program.

To help kick it off U of L football coach Bobby Petrino showed up.

He is the honorary Christmas Chairperson and, along with his family, dropped the ceremonial first donation.

"Please join the Petrino family foundation in supporting the Salvation Army in feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, clothing the poor and giving Christmas to 10,000," Coach Petrino said.

The red kettle campaign also launched today at some Kroger stores, with other locations to follow in the coming days.
