The world's tallest red kettle is set to be installed in Cadillac Square on Friday, part of the holidays returning to metro Detroit.

The Salvation Army's red kettle stands 56 feet tall, 24 feet wide and includes 26,000 sparkling LED lights.

It marks the unofficial start of The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign. They have a goal to raise $8.2 million to support metro Detroiters in need.

Money raised will help fund the year-round efforts to provide more than just feeding and sheltering people.
