MILWAUKEE COUNTY (December 30, 2019) — The Christmas Campaign in Milwaukee County is nearing its goal, but is still considerably short. As of December 30th, the community has generously donated close to $3.1 million. The 2019 campaign goal is $3.7 million.

This past Christmas season approximately 10,800 children were provided toys through The Salvation Army’s Toy Shop distribution and approximately 6,600 individuals enjoyed a delicious meal at the 30th Annual Family Feast on Christmas day at the Wisconsin Center served by 1,200 volunteers.

Throughout the year, The Salvation Army continues to provide shelter, food, and basic human needs to those in need in Milwaukee County. Locally, 87 cents of every dollar raised is used to support program and services in Milwaukee County.
