  • Calgary Salvation Army only half way to $1.25M fundraising goal as Christmas approachesMore

The coins are worth over $8,000.

"Every year we take applications to assess needs of low-income families in Randolph County", Stewart said. Now, Regamey said three-quarters of its volunteer shifts have been covered for the final days.

The state as a whole is down 11 percent compared to past year, the Kettles specifically are down 11 percent.

The campaign ends Saturday night because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year - a church-based operation, The Salvation Army doesn't fundraise on Sundays.

"Whether it's providing backpacks with school supplies to students, food hampers, toys at Christmas, assistance with job search, clothing and household items, or simply a listening ear - the Salvation Army is committed to providing help and hope to those in need in our communities", said Mark Stanley, divisional secretary for public relations and development. "The money will help us find a new vehicle to expand the number of kids involved".

Bells are still ringing at local malls and shops as Salvation Army volunteers struggle to get attention for their red kettles.

"With so many individuals and families in need, it is essential that we meet our Red Kettle Campaign goal this year", said Major David B. Davis, Massachusetts Divisional Commander. While Chapman said he is not sure who makes the donations, he has an idea.
