WAUSAU — With 10 days left to ring, the local chapter of the Salvation Army in Wausau has met about 42 percent of its fundraising goal during the annual Red Kettle campaign.

This year’s goal is $205,000, and so far the Salvation Army has raised about $86,000, according to a news release issued early Tuesday.

The campaign’s last day is December 23.

The campaign still has many open two-hour bell ringing slots to be filled. Volunteers can call 715-845-4272 or sign up online at www.sawausau.org.

New this year is the Text-to-Give program for those that may not carry cash for the red kettles. Donors may text the word “bells” to 91999 to give or can also donate on the website.
