The Salvation Army is about $60,000 short of their goal for their annual Army kettle campaign this year.
Major Bruce Mac Kenzie says they have raised about 154,000 as of Wednesday afternoon.
“We have four days to go and we’re still quite hopeful Regina’s generosity will make a difference and help us reach that objective.”
The goal for this year was set at $215,000. He said this year was similar, maybe a little bit less, than this point last year.
Mac Kenzie said he couldn’t give a reason why donations were down this year, but is positive they will receive a large amount of donations as Christmas gets near.
“Last week of Christmas, we call it the home stretch, and generally we do see people who are more interested, more excited about sharing the Christmas spirit.”
The kettle campaign runs until 5 p.m. Christmas Eve.
