The Salvation Army just kicked off their 128th Red Kettle Campaign. This year, your help is really needed.

The Winnebago County chapter of the Salvation Army has a goal of raising $400,000 dollars during this year's Christmas-time campaign. So many individuals and families will be helped with that money. To raise that kind of money, the bells need to be ringing a lot on street corners and department stores. In order to cover all the ringing that will be needed, more families in the area need to get involved.
