MILWAUKEE COUNTY — The Red Kettle Campaign in Milwaukee County is nearing its goal, but is still short. As of December 24 the community has generously donated $2.6 million. The 2019 campaign goal is $3.7 million. 

While most of The Salvation Army's bell ringers will stop collecting donations on December 24, some kettles will be out until December 28. The campaign will end on December 31. 


"It is critical that we meet our goal in order to keep our programs and services that provide food, shelter, clothing and other assistance for families in need," said Major Steve Woodard, Coordinator for The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County. "Eighty-seven cents of every dollar raised is used to support programs and services in Milwaukee County."
