Red kettles drawing more donations than mail, website

It's unclear how much money was taken but LeMar said typically bell ringers raise between $300-500 a day.

Red Kettle collections comprise approximately 25 percent of donations to The Salvation Army in New Mexico for the entire year. "We are asking people to dig deep, our campaign only goes until Christmas Eve". Direct contributions can be sent by check to The Salvation Army of Kenosha, 3116 75th St., Kenosha, WI 53142. Assistance for basic living essentials include food, clothing, utilities, housing assistance, temporary lodging, transportation, prescription medications and other emergency needs. Some bell ringers directly benefit from services provided by The Salvation Army and have chosen to support the organization that supports them. Hargis said he based the goal off what they raised a year ago.

Casey says, "They all fall into the category of needing Christmas".

"We can stretch a dollar, probably better than anybody, but if we don't get the dollar, we can't stretch it", she said.

The e-commerce giant is one of Google's biggest customers, while Amazon buys several expensive ads on Google's platform. Amazon Music Unlimited offers users access to more than 40 million songs, and provides curated playlists and stations.

Lt. Bernabe said, "It has to be someone who has a heart for what we do".

Volunteers can make someone's holiday brighter by ringing a bell, adopting an angel, packing a box or dropping change in one of the red kettles throughout the county, he said. "What we've been trying to do is cultivate volunteers to raise more money at the kettles and encourage donors to continue giving - we can't do it without them".

"You're doing the most good, you're helping the community, you help give back", said Childs.

"We have two veterans volunteering this year". If you see someone with just the kettle, that's a red flag. "It's that special connection that we feel with our neighbor when we come together as a community and shed light and hope in lives that are dark and have lost hope".
