Salvation Army Of Dane County Falls $20,000 Short From Fundraising Goal

The Salvation Army of Dane County?s kettle campaign final counts reveal the amount of money raised fell below the $700,000 goal.

The nonprofit raised just more than $680,000, which is higher than last year?s numbers, according to officials.

Salvation Army?s Development Manager Chris Ziemba said the higher goal this year aimed to make up for budget cuts.

?We are just going to have to take a closer look at the budget as the year continues and see what we are able to fund if we don?t continue to meet some of our fundraising goals,” Ziemba said.

As of Dec. 27, the nonprofit was $130,000 short from its goal.

He said the nonprofit is thankful for the community’s generosity and the volunteers’ help.
