With a little less than two weeks to go, the Salina Salvation is $39,000 short of its Kettle Campaign goal.
Captain Lynn Lopez tells KSAL News that they are at $44,000 of their $83,000 goal for the Kettle Campaign. They have only have 10 days left to reach the goal.

Lopez says the funds they collect remain local and are used all year long for Emergency Services including rent, utilities, and food, the Community Meal Program, and the Food Pantry. It also provides some funding for the Christmas programs.
