The Lafayette Salvation Army says they were less than $60,000 away from reaching their $200,000 goal for the 2020 kettle season.

Over the holidays a total of $142,408 was raised for the local community.

The Kettle season, according to The Salvation Army, is the organization's most significant annual campaign. Funds received this season help in supplying the organization's feeding and shelter programs for the following year.

Although Kettle season is over for 2020, The Salvation Army says that it is not too late to contribute to the online kettle and help them continue to provide all of the local programs and services.

"We are so thankful for all who contributed to The Salvation Army this Christmas. We did not reach our goal, however, it is never too late to give back to your community. We ask that you make your tax deductible donation before midnight on Dec. 31 to help make the new year a success for our neighbors in need. We were all negatively impacted in 2020 by COVID-19 and want to ensure that we are making 2021 the best that we can for those who come to The Salvation Army for help," stated Lt. Thomas Johnson, The Salvation Army of Lafayette Corps Officer.
