Salvation Army Kettle Donations Down

Salvation Army Red Kettle Bell Donations Are Down

Bell ringers are outside of shopping complexes across the country, with their red kettles, and jingling bells.

This year, the Chattanooga Salvation Army is $20,000 behind on donations, compared to what they had collected by now in years past.

"The red kettle money goes to everything we do at Christmas and a little beyond," said Kimberly George, a spokesperson for the Salvation Army. "Our goal is $480,000. That is $30,000 more than last year, because our needs are up."

Bell ringers will be out until Christmas Eve, Monday through Saturday.
