On a warm Saturday, December 12, 2015, members of Rocky Point Rotary and family volunteered to man the Salvation Army collection kettles at Stop and Shop in Miller Place, This is an annual initiative undertaken by the Club. The Salvation Army kettle drive was started in 1891 when Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee was distraught because so many poor individuals in San Francisco were going hungry. During the holiday season, he resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner for the destitute and poverty-stricken.
