The Salvation Army of Collier County recently announced the 2014 Red Kettle Campaign successfully reached 94% of its goal this holiday season. Between November 20th and December 24th, The Salvation Army of Collier County raised over $330,000 of the projected $350,000 goal for the campaign with $11,000 donated to The Salvation Army Naples Online Red Kettle.
“Without the help of our generous community Red Kettle donations and all of our volunteer bell ringers—including local organizations, school groups, clubs and churches—we could not have had a successful campaign,” said Major Dan Proctor the Naples Regional Coordinator . “We are also grateful for the local businesses that supported us with red kettles and bell ringers on-site this holiday season. Our local programs rely on this important fundraising campaign. The funds raised benefit our local social services, youth programs, and senior outreach programs throughout the year,” he continues.
