Salvation Army collects $25,000 during latest Match Day

Red Kettle Campaign 60% towards goal

A second match day for the Salvation Army was another success.

Nearly $25,000 was dropped into the kettles this past Saturday.

Local businesses and individuals in our community agreed to match up to $20,000 of that total. That puts the Campaign about 60% towards its $825,000 goal.

“It goes right to helping people who truly need it. People who are homeless, people who are hungry, people who have jobs and are struggling, really trying to get back on their feet again, but they just need help,” said Julie Nelson of the Salvation Army.

News 8’s Brittany Schmidt, Kyle Dimke and Charlie Clifford spent Monday morning volunteering for the Red Kettle Campaign.

The kettles will be out through the afternoon on Christmas Eve day, but the Red Kettle Campaign goes through January.
