The Salvation Army in Door County’s Red Kettle Campaign continues through Saturday. Nationwide, the Salvation Army is at only 68 percent of its goal according to a statement released on Christmas Eve. Locally the organization is better equipped to deal with the trend taking people away from retail stores and online for their shopping. You can find kettles throughout the county including hardware stores, restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. The Door County extension is mainly engaged in efforts that reduce homelessness according to volunteer Tom Mulinix.
The Red Kettle Campaign continues to be the primary way for the Salvation Army to raise awareness of its charitable efforts.
