With 17 days remaining in the Red Kettle Campaign, the Salvation Army of the Quad Cities is concerned as kettle donations are lagging behind previous years totals.

"Our goal of $750,000 to keep our programs strong is still a long way away," said Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator for the Salvation Army, in a release. "We are grateful for the $230,000 that has been donated to date, but we are $150,000 behind last year at this time. The six days that we lost between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a huge concern. Other factors may be donor fatigue due to the recent typhoon and tornado disasters."

He went on to say that Red Kettle donations account for 60% of their annual budget.

The money collected provides shelter, food and other basic needs to families and individuals in crisis.
