LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

The Salvation Army is celebrating another successful Match Day.

On Saturday, $28,092 was dropped into the kettles around La Crosse.

The Ho-Chunk Nation pledged to match the first $20,000.

The Salvation Army says that puts them at nearly $309,000 this season, which is less than halfway to its goal of $650,000.

They're hoping the second Match Day this coming Saturday will help. Local individuals and businesses will match about $18,000.
