Salvation Army donations short of goal

The Salvation Army in Marquette says there is still time to contribute to the annual Red Kettle Campaign.

Captain Joel Arthur reports that, while the community was very generous during the holidays and gave thousands of dollars through the Cheer Club, private donations and through the bell-ringing effort, the agency is still short of its’ Red Kettle Goal.

The Red Kettle goal set by the Marquette Salvation Army was $100,000.  It is short of this goal by $15,000.  Captain Joel Arthur said in a press release,  “We are very pleased with the support of the community, but hoping that they can still stretch to help us meet this goal.  We can still count funds coming in and marked ‘kettles’ until January 9th, 2013.” 

The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, and has been supporting those in need for 130 years in the United States.  For more information, go to
