LEWISTON, ID — The sound of a ringing bell can be heard around our region for weeks now.
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Drive is looking to raise $73,000 to help families in need during the holidays.
The number of volunteers to ring the bell has skyrocketed, but it isn’t all good news.
With only a week to go until Christmas, the Red Kettle Drive is only 64-percent of the way towards its fundraising goal.
"It is concerning because if we don't meet our goal, our budget, we'll have to cut some of our social services for those who are in need in the communities of Lewiston and Clarkston,” Lt. David Aycock, Salvation Army.
Lieutenant Aycock said an option is to try to match all donations for a day in order to meet the goal. He said the easiest way for them to meet their goal is to keep donating to help those in need during the holidays.
