Salvation Army's Red Kettle Donations Are Down

An anonymous donor left a gold coin in a Salvation Army Red Kettle in St. Matthews. The Salvation Army says this year's goal is still lacking $100,000 to meet its campaign goal for 2017.

The kettles, clear plastic balls hanging from a tall, red lanyard, will be at various locations throughout the city, manned by volunteers, until 6 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, Dec. 23).

Last year, The Salvation Army provided over 2.4 million meals and helped almost half a million MA residents in need.

"It's very crucial to have the money raised this time of year because it doesn't just affect our Christmas work, it also affects the work we do all year round".

Bell ringers in Fanueil Hall say its actually one of the best spots in town for collections thanks to all the shoppers and tourists, but as a whole, the state is falling short.

A generous donation is bringing extra joy to the Salvation Army as Christmas approaches.

In Ephrata, red kettles can be found at Safeway and Walmart.
