Red Kettle

Volunteers Jon Larocque, left, and Alyssa Foley ring their bells soliciting donations for Elkhart Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign at Walmart on Old U.S. 20.

ELKHART — The Elkhart Salvation Army has surpassed its holiday season goal of $500,000 nearly four weeks ahead of the deadline, but the organization could still use some extra help, officials said.

Despite a shortage of bell ringers, Salvation Army Lt. Wayne Benedict said the organization exceeded its goal for the Red Kettle Campaign, which contributed over $100,000 to the Army’s overall fundraising goal.
