Salvation Army Kettle Campaign $9 Million Behind Target

Salvation Army Kettle Campaign $9 Million Behind Target

The Salvation Army-Fox Cities plans to serve 1,685 households, including 3,997 children, with food and toys as part of the Toys for Tots program.

"Our team members love to support their community and are willing to take on any challenge". The Salvation Army relies on direct contributions and is not funded by the government or the United Way. "It's really been a neat thing".

Police in New Hampshire say a man collecting money for the Salvation Army has been accused of pocketing some of the cash.

Plus, toys and jackets were donated to make up for a shortfall of angel tree donations.

"Every donation counts and helps us to fight the war on hunger, homelessness and hopelessness", Smith said.

As of December 13, the kettles have raised a total of $473,620.

"They just wouldn't work out, they're just too expensive", said Flanagan. "Without them, we wouldn't have a Red Kettle Campaign!"

The Salvation Army gave around two-to-three hundred gifts to low-income families, along with food for the holiday and a stocking stuffer table which parents could collect more presents.

Students have been participating in this drive for five years, and in that time frame, more than 7,000 toys have been donated.

The Salvation Army is still looking for individuals, families, civic groups and even businesses to ring bells beside Red Kettles.
