Our goal is to keep those programs and services in place and meet the ever increasing need for emergency and Christmas assistance,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander.
The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County announced the launch of its annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign on November 2nd. The goal of The Salvation Army in Milwaukee is 3 million dollars that will sustain Toy Shop, Christmas Family Feast, emergency shelter, medical, food pantries, and meals to the homeless and care to our seniors and veterans.
