Salvation Army continuing to ask for campaign donations

The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Christmas Campaign is continuing to collect donations in the new year as the organization struggles to reach its $3.8 million campaign goal.

Earlier this week, the Salvation Army reported that its campaign total is $72,000 down from what it was at this time last year.

Collecting funds was an ongoing struggle for the organization throughout the holiday season.

Red Kettle Christmas Campaign proceeds support more than 80 programs and services that aid local families and children.

“Along with expanding programs and service, contributions made during our annual Red Kettle Campaign ensure critical needs of the unemployed, underemployed, homeless and others who are often overlooked and underserved, are met,” Major Dan Jennings, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan, said in a statement.

Donations can be made at www.SAmilwaukee.org.
