JANESVILLE—The Janesville Salvation Army's Christmas fundraising campaign is $100,000 behind its $420,000 goal, according to a news release from the religious and charitable organization.

Rainy weather in December is being blamed for dampening red kettle donations, the release said.

“When it's raining many of our outside (red kettle) locations remain vacant and people rush past bell ringers in an attempt to get out of the rain,” the release stated.

That's why Salvation Army leaders want people to know there is still time to donate to the annual fundraising campaign in the following ways:

-- Mail a check to the Salvation Army at 514 Sutherland Ave., Janesville, WI 53545.

-- Text Sakettle to 71777 on your smart phone.

-- Donate online at igfn.us/vfsakettle

-- Create a mobile red kettle account at igfn.us/vfsakettle then invite others to give.

Call 608-757-8300 for more information.
