Anonymous Donor To Match $20,000 in Donations for The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army in Dane County started their annual Red Kettle Campaign in November with a goal of raising $525,000. With nine days left in the campaign, the non-profit needs to raise an additional $316,650 to meet their goal.
After hearing about this in the local media last night, an anonymous donor stepped up today. This donor is pledging to match up to $20,000 given in kettles and online on Tuesday, December 21st.
The Salvation Army is putting out a great call to the community to help make the most out of this Match Day to help meet their $525,000 goal. Here are ways individuals, families, workplaces, and more can get involved:
- Ring bells! Sign up for a shift at your local grocery or convenience store to ring bells by The Salvation Army Red Kettle. Without a volunteer at the kettle, donations can’t be accepted. This is a great opportunity to give without giving financially.
- Donate at the kettle! As you see a Red Kettle across Dane County, consider throwing in an extra dollar or two to help support the programs offered by The Salvation Army.
- Donate online! You can give to the Virtual Red Kettle by visiting: https://bit.ly/2021DaneCountyVirtualRedKettle
The Salvation Army is so grateful for this donor, and for all the volunteers and community members who have given time and donations this holiday season. In the last week of the campaign, they encourage folks to get out in the community and ring bells.
