Salvation Army's red kettle campaign impacted by winter storm

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The red kettle campaign is the Salvation Army's biggest fundraiser. The funds raised help carry out this non-profit's mission. The goal is $250,000, but it's facing a snow-covered mountain. This weekend's inclement weather forced the Salvation Army to suspend its bell-ringing at all 30 sites.

"We are now about nine percent below than last year," said Nathael Doria, corps officer of the Lubbock Salvation Army. " We are asking that our community help us, because the success of the Salvation Army is to be ready when somebody comes to our door and we have the resources to help them."

Those resources include shelter, meals, clothing, and homelessness prevention along with several other programs. The red kettle campaign is the foundation of the non-profit's finances and it needs your help.

"The last three years the Salvation Army has not been able to reach the goal of 250,000," said Doria. "This year we are very optimistic or we were very optimistic until the storm and we are asking for everyone's help." 

Along with donations, the Salvation Army's also calling for more volunteers, it has 30 kettle at 18 sites. If you would like to donate or volunteer you can sign up by following this link: http://www.salvationarmytexas.org/ways-to-give/
