Red kettle effort at 78%

The Salvation Army Corps Church that covers northern Rock County has collected about 78 percent of its red-kettle campaign goal. The bell-ringers ended their season Dec. 23, but the red kettle campaign continues through mid-January. Last year at this time, the kettle campaign was in a similar situation, having collected 82 percent of the same goal, $375,000, Fay said. The campaign ended $14,000 below goal.
