Kettle campaign coming up short
The Salvation Army's 2009 Kettle Campaign is falling a bit short.
According to Duana Brewer, director of Grace Place/Salvation Army in Somerset, the goal this year was raising $100,000. As of Monday, Dec. 21, they have raised $75,000.
Last year, the Kettle Campaign raised $94,000 overall.
"I'm a little concerned because if we don't at least match last year, we will have to turn families (in the St. Croix County) away," Bremer said.
