Red kettle donations in Lake County are down by 32 percent compared to this same time a year ago. The Salvation Army of Lake County reports the iconic red kettles have been on the streets and at shopping centers since November 8th, with the goal of raising 940-thousand dollars to fund the emergency and social services provided during the holiday season and throughout the year. In Lake County, the Salvation Army serves more than 11-thousand people, provides more than 25-hundred food baskets, eight-thousand toys and more than four-thousand articles of clothing.
The Lake County Salvation Army is also hosting the 'I Double Dog Dare You' bell ringing challenge, which allows groups, families and individuals to volunteer as bell ringers the week of December 16 - 21. The top ringer from each of the three categories will be announced Christmas Eve and will receive special recognition at the annual Spring Volunteer Luncheon.
