LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The Salvation Army not only reached, but surpassed its Red Kettle campaign goal.
With the help of a $20,000 donation Monday from the Ho Chunk Nation, the non-profit raised more than $655,000.
Some of the money will go to re-establishing positions and programs that were cut last year because of lack funding.
Organizers say surpassing their goal means they will have extra money for this year's budget compared to previous years. "To make this, makes everything easier throughout the year. Our board was very concerned this year. You know, they were very concerned about where we were at financially and so we actually had to go through that budget a couple of times," said Maj. Paul Moore.
The Salvation Army hopes to partner with the Ho Chunk Nation to provide better assistance within the community.23916368
