2 days to go: Salvation Army $25K short of Red Kettle goal

Bells are still ringing at local malls and shops as Salvation Army volunteers struggle to get attention for their red kettles.

The one ounce Canadian gold coin, worth approximately $1,320, was found last night in a Red Kettle that had been set up at the Kroger on N. Hubbards Lane in St. Matthews.

In a release, Salvation Army officials in Louisville say a gold coin was given anonymously last year, and similar donations are made throughout the USA during the holiday season each year.

Officials also found a gold coin a year ago in Louisville and say there are usually a few such coins found in locations around the U.S.

Donations to the Salvation Army's campaign include almost $55,000 from the Pipefitters Local 663.

Captain Schaal says they need at least $40,000 more to avoid cutting services and at least $80,000 to reach their goal.

Money raised pays for the organization's expenses and to help out the needy in the community with things like food, clothing, vouchers, furniture, Christmas hampers and toys for children.
