The Salvation Army is well below its fundraising goal in Regina with just one day left in the campaign.
The kettle campaign launched on Nov. 25 with a goal of raising $225,000 to help Regina families. The money raised during the campaign is used for the charity’s Christmas programs, but also helps fund them for the rest of the year.
As of Wednesday morning, the campaign had only raised $173,000. The Salvation Army says part of the reason why the campaign is short is they haven’t had enough volunteers for every Regina location.
Kettles will be out at 13 locations in Regina until 4 p.m. Christmas Eve.
