Red Kettle Campaign makes holiday push

Posted:

The Quincy Salvation Army is looking forward to one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. 

Thursday's winter storm put a freeze on Red Kettle donations.

The Quincy Salvation Army still needs about $90,000 to reach its $375,000 goal.

Major Dan Jennings hopes to reach that goal by Christmas, but says if they have to, they'll carry the Red Kettle Campaign into January.

"It's wait and see. We'll see how the funds come in, we're pretty close for this time of year. So the hope is we make it and we don't have to extend the bell ringing campaign into January," says Major Jennings.

Major Jennings says the money raised during the Christmas Campaign supports year round programs and services provided by the Salvation Army, including the emergency shelter and the food pantry.
