Metro Louisville Salvation Army hopes to reach goal by Christmas Eve

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign is a familiar sight and sound across the country during the holidays.

With just a few days left of the bell ringing, the Salvation Army in Louisville is asking for more donations.

The organization is $70,000 short of their 2018 goal.

“All the money we raise for that goes back into Louisville, back into our programs to help those who need help,” Major Roy Williams said.

Bell ringers will be at 80 locations throughout Louisville until Christmas Eve, hoping to raise the remaining amount.

“Throw a few dollars in our kettle. Let us change someone's life in this new year,” Williams said.

The Salvation Army uses the money to feed and help get people off the streets all year long.

If they don't reach their $565,000 goal, they will have to look at other fundraising options in the new year.
