Commissioner William A. Roberts, National Commander of The Salvation Army in the United States, represented the Army at a red kettle location outside of Starbucks in Old Town Alexandria, Va., Dec. 2.

Standing in the cold with a bell in one hand, a coffee occasionally in the other and always a grateful smile on his face, Roberts wished passersby a Merry Christmas and offered a boisterous “thank you” to all who donated to the kettle.

When his shift ended, Commissioner Nancy Roberts, National President of Women’s Ministries, took over the bell ringing with Salvation Army Lt. Col. Sandra Defibaugh. National Headquarters staff manned the kettle for a number of days in support of the Red Kettle Campaign.
