WATERTOWN, S.D.—It’s been a slow start to the Watertown Salvation Army’s red kettle bell ringing campaign this holiday season.

They’ve set a goal of raising $80,000 by the time the kettles are put into storage on Christmas Eve, but so far, they’re not tracking with their goal….

Salvation Army Lieutenant Zach Zumwalt tells KWAT News just how far behind they are….

If the fundraising goal is not met, program cuts are possible in 2020…..

There are seven locations in Watertown where the red kettle bells are located.

If you’d prefer to support the Salvation Army and their programs, you can also mail a check directly to their offices.
