Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign raises close to $140K

SALISBURY, MD.- The Lower Eastern Shore Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign is over and we’re told this fundraising effort was a huge success.

The in-person donation portion of the fundraiser raised close to $140,000, which was their goal. Captain Matthew Trantham with the Salvation Army, said this money will support emergency, youth, senior programs, and more. We’re told it’s encouraging to see people donate, especially with a low turnout last year.

“Back in 2020, our Kettle Campaign was down about $20,000,” Trantham said. “It was very tough last year, but this year knowing that the Red Kettle Campaign raised the amount that we needed for that part of our goal it feels really great to know that the community still supports the Salvation Army; they still believe in our mission.”

There’s still a chance to donate through the mail. You can send contributions to The Salvation Army, 407 Oak St., Salisbury, MD 21804. You can also visit their website.
