“We want to make giving as
easy as possible. Eighty four cents of every dollar donated supports
critical programs and services, including emergency disaster services.
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.
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.
