There are only five days left in the Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Campaign, and the local organization needs $11,000 more to reach its $50,000 fundraising goal. I think we exceeded that.

Donations also can be brought to the Salvation Army office at 419 S. Madison. The captain says there are 231 forgotten angels - gifts that haven't been returned. "And if a child asked for a specific thing that was not filled, we can use these toys to add to the angels that have already been returned by the volunteer shoppers".

All funds that are raised in Merrill during the kettle campaign stay in Merrill and are distributed through St. Vincent de Paul.

"They just wouldn't work out, they're just too expensive", said Flanagan. Bell ringers are still needed until 9 p.m. on December 23.
