Helped raise $810,600 during Christmastime 2019


Our annual RED KETTLE VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION DINNER was celebrated Monday, February 10th 2020, with over 80 in attendance at The Salvation Army of Waukesha County. Major Timothy Nauta announced our final achievement .. slightly over the $800,000 goal of the Christmas season Red Kettle fundraising campaign .. at $810,600.

Individual and group volunteers were recognized and thanked for the monies raised at fifty Red Kettle locations across Waukesha County. The funds raised account for over half of our annual budget for 2020.

"We cannot thank enough, both our donors and our volunteers for helping us reach our critical goal," said Major Timothy Nauta.

"Our combination of direct mail and Red Kettle donations pays for so much important humanitarian work in Waukesha County, that we're deeply gratified to be able to move forward in 2020 with the funds budgeted for our various humanitarian ministries."

All of our ministries are listed on our website with links to more information, at," Nauta said.
