The Alton Salvation Army has fallen short of its Red Kettle campaign goal of $115,000.  Although the target was not met, Salvation Army Lieutenant Teri Ellison says the campaign gathered about $72,000, but all things considered she thinks that is a pretty good number.

Ellison comments

She reminds the Red Kettle Campaign is just a portion of the overall Christmas campaign.  Ellison hopes they can bring in another $42,000 as the donations will continue to come in through the end of January.
