SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The Salvation Army of Siouxland is two-thirds of the way to their Red Kettle Campaign goal.
The donation total recently hit $100,000.
There’s still $50,000 left to reach the overall goal of $150,000 before Christmas Eve.
“With Thanksgiving falling so late on the calendar in 2019, it’s been an uphill climb,” said Captain Chris Clarke. “This late Thanksgiving means that we’ve had five fewer days on which to solicit kettle donations this year. But we’re confident that the generosity of the Siouxland community will get up to the top.”
The red kettles will continue to be deployed at area stores until 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
This year, kettles are equipped to take digital donations via Apple Pay and Google Play, in addition to traditional cash donations.
Volunteers are still needed to staff the red kettles.
