Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign in Bowling Green falling below expectations
BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- In this season of giving, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign in Bowling Green is falling short of it’s monetary goal.
According to a new release sent out from the organization, just over $51,000 has been raised so far, but the goal is $100,000.
This year’s bell-ringing season is a week shorter than usual because Thanksgiving fell late this year.
The campaign is the Salvation Army’s primary fundraiser and raised essential funds to operate year-round programs that make a difference in the lives of people in Bowling Green.
The Salvation Army bells will continue to ring outside stores through Christmas Eve and the organization is optimistic that with the community’s support they can still reach their fundraising goal.
