(La Porte, IN) - Giving from the community has the La Porte Salvation Army on pace to meet its financial goals during the Christmas season.
Captain Charles Pinkston said just over $15,000 was dropped into kettles during the first two weeks of the annual kettle drive. The goal is $80,000 from the kettles when the campaign ends before Christmas Day.
“We’re about or just above where we had been at this time in previous years,” Pinkston said.
The kettles in La Porte are outside Rural King, Walmart, Kroger, Al’s Supermarket, Ace Hardware on the city’s west side, and the U.S. Post Office. Pinkston said more bills than coins are being dropped into the kettles right now than in previous years.
