Red Kettle campaign is going slower than expected


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Salvation Army says this year's Red Kettle campaign in Dane County is going slower than expected.

The local chapter is more than $100,000 behind where they should be at this point in the campaign, according to the Dane County Coordinator Loren Carter. He believes there are many reasons for the lower total. They could range from a local of snow possibly leading to a lack of Christmas spirit to people instead donating to Hurricane Sandy relief.

Carter says donations do usually pick up in the final week before Christmas. Red Kettle volunteers will be collecting until December 24.
