2 days to go: Salvation Army $25K short of Red Kettle goal

Donations to the Salvation Army's campaign include almost $55,000 from the Pipefitters Local 663. The Salvation Army says this year's goal is still lacking $100,000 to meet its campaign goal for 2017.

The funds raised through the Red Kettle program in Baton Rouge are used directly in the 10-Parish service area of the Greater Baton Rouge command. That is because the Salvation Army's Christmas Family Feast is on Christmas Day.

Local Salvation Army Major Edgar George tells Boston 25 News the fundraising goal in MA is set at $3.5 million dollars - the same goal they have had for the past few years, according to a spokesman.

We would like to thank you all, and have a merry Christmas.
