GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Salvation Army of Brown County has surpassed $1 million in donations, but remains short of their fundraising goal.

Officials say they are about $152,031, or 13 percent, shy of its $1.2 million goal. The charity is continuing its Christmas campaign through the month of January. Donations can be made online or sent by mail to The Salvation Army of Brown County, 626 Union Ct., Green Bay, WI 54303.

However, the Salvation Army-Fox Cities has exceeded its $1.2 million fundraising goal by $18,200. Leaders there say about half of the money was raised on nearly a dozen match days, where area businesses and charitable groups matched community donations.

Both Salvation Army corps say they rely heavily on red kettle donations to support their efforts year-round. Proceeds to toward programs such as the noon meal program, food pantries and rent assistance.
