The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County Exceeds 2020 Christmas Campaign Goal
MILWAUKEE COUNTY – The total from The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County‘s 2020 Red Kettle Campaign is in.
The goal for the 2020 campaign was to raise $3,150,000, and together with the generosity of the community, and two anonymous donors with combined gifts totaling over $1 million, a total of $4,040,442 was raised!
The campaign started on November 13, 2020 and ran through December 24, 2020. Of that total, about $530,000 came from red kettles alone.
Donations will continue to support The Salvation Army’s 80+ programs and services in Milwaukee County, such as the Emergency Lodge homeless shelter, Feed the Kids summer meals program, Coats for Kids program, Toy Shop program, Christmas Family Feast, our food pantries, and emergency assistance for individuals and families both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related.
“The Salvation Army met greater need in 2020 due to COVID-19 than ever before, but the need continues in 2021,” Woodard said. “To find more in-depth information about our programs and how to donate in 2021, please visit SAMilwaukee.org.”
