The Western Pennsylvania Salvation Army Division announced yesterday that its red kettle campaign raised more money than it did last year, but still fell more than $270,000 short of its goal.
The campaign has raised roughly $2.55 million so far, but 24 of the 39 facilities within the 28-county Western Pennsylvania Division missed their goal, including Indiana and Punxsutawney. The announcement does not include exact dollar figures for each unit. Allegheny County had the largest shortfall, at $150,000.
Although the kettles have disappeared from area storefronts, you may still donate via the web at www.salvationarmywpa.org, or in person at each local chapter. You may also mail a check to Salvation Army Western Pennsylvania Divisonal Headquarters, P.O. Box 742, 700 North Bell Avenue, Carnegie, PA 15106. Mark “Christmas Campaign” on the memo line of the check. The funds will be credited to the total of the local chapter.
