Milwaukee Salvation Army Red Kettles down $13,000

The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County is down $13,000 in its Red Kettles compared with this time last year.
“We are very concerned that we’re down so early in the kettle season. We need additional red kettle sites, volunteers and donations to keep critical programs and services operating,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander. “The kettles take not only coins but also bills and checks.”
Eighty-four cents of every dollar donated helps to sustain year-round critical programs and services.
In Milwaukee County, the Salvation Army operates 85 programs. Those programs and services include but are not limited to Christmas assistance, disaster relief, emergency housing, food and clothing, utility and rent assistance, employment services and summer lunch programs for children.
