Wauwatosa, WI (December 8, 2014) The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County is down $65,000 in their Red Kettles compared to this time last year. “We are very concerned that we’re down. We need additional volunteer bell ringers and more donations to keep critical programs and services operating in Milwaukee County for families in need. This year’s Red Kettle Christmas Campaign goal is $3.8M. It’s an ambitious goal, but its, needed to sustain year round programming for more than 80 programs and services,” said Major Dan Jennings, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan.
“Join our Just 2 hours ring bells campaign, and ask two friends to do the same and post your pictures to social media at #just2hours. It’s critical to have more Red Kettle sites and a presence at every site” said Major Jennings.
Donations made to the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign support The Salvation Army’s Toy Shop, the Back to School program, disaster relief, emergency housing, food and clothing, emergency utility and rent assistance, employment services, and summer lunch programs for children.
