The Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign is only halfway to reaching their goal of $384,000. The campaign began six days later than normal and two days were lost because of winter weather. The low funds will not affect the services that they provide for the holiday season, but will affect next year’s programs. Salvation Army Captain Ronnie Amick tells KZIM-KSIM that he isn’t sure what programs would be at risk. There are kettles in 18 locations in Cape Girardeau at grocery stores and a variety of retailers, and they will continue to take donations up until 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
