Thousands of Toys are still needed! Red Kettle Campaign Donations are $400,000 short of goal!
Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator, exclaims “I cannot explain why the toys are coming in so slowly this year – this is a very generous and compassionate community. Please Don’t Forget to think of your needy neighbors." He adds, “The Red Kettle Campaign raises 70% of our annual budget and still has a long way to go. The monies collected provide shelter, food and other basic needs to families and individuals in crisis. We depend on the generosity of each individual in the Quad Cities to be able provide our services. We try not to think about falling short of the goal – we simply cannot fallshort this year.”
