Red Kettle Campaign $300,000 away from goal

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Salvation Army says if they don't raise $300,000 by the end of January, they could be at risk of cutting several programs and services. 

As of Thursday, January 25, donors have given $3.5 million, 92% of the Salvation Army's goal of $3.8 million. The organization says if their goal isn't met, it would be the first time in 12 years. Money raised during the Red Kettle Campaign stays locally to help area men, women and children.

Donations have been received from red kettles, mail-in donations, mail appeals, major gifts, online donations and special events. Eighty-seven cents of every dollar raised is used to support programs and services in Milwaukee County.
