Red Kettle drive running short of goal as Christmas approaches

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Salvation Army reports that their Red Kettle drive this year may not make its goal.

The goal is $500,000.

But they only have three more days to meet it.

“We are $43,000 behind where we were at this point last year,” states Area Commander, Major Robert Lyle.

“We have faith that God will provide through our generous community, and those in need will be taken care of this holiday season and throughout the year. We just have to be patient on when the donations will arrive.”

The annual Angel Tree campaign did better than usual this year.

Next week is also an important time for The Salvation Army.

They get a lot of year end donations as people look for tax-deductible gifts.

Their offices will be open and available to receive monetary gifts, stock gifts, vehicles and material donations.
