The Salvation Army helps the community in a variety of ways.

The Salvation Army reported Monday that it has raised $252,418.36 in its annual campaign, which began November 10 and concludes December 23.

"The Salvation Army is the only organization in the area offering a free dinner on a daily basis". The online and mail campaign continues through January 31.

Three times a week, Lorna Moise volunteers for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Program. Some volunteers and paid bell ringers stay out for more than 10 hours a day because without them, the Red Kettle Campaign wouldn't run.

"Our red kettle campaign goal is $120,000 this year, which is actually, we've reduced that, down from $150,000 last year, and that's why our struggle is such a surprise this year", Lt. Jeff Olson of the Manitowoc County Salvation Army said.

Whether the UFC would allow Diaz to break from his contract and compete in the boxing ring, of course, is hard to say. Also worth noting is the vitriol between White and Arum.

The goal for this year is set at $120,000.

At this point they are below last year's donations at the same point in time.

Bubon said two reasons for lagging donations at the kettles may be fewer people shopping at brick-and-mortar stores and people carrying less cash. "Please help us keep these programs going by donating at a red kettle in your community". "No donation is too small, it can all make an impact".

There are around 20 different physical red kettle donation points but donations can be made online at www.satraversecity.org, text "MyRK" to 71777, or by dropping off a donation at the Salvation Army Community Center at 1239 Barlow St. The donations support holiday programs and year-round services such as the food assistance program. Mondays through Saturdays through December 23. The Salvation Army also assists residents year-round with utility bills, rent and meals, feeding approximately 40,000 people annually, Stearns said.
