Haven't thrown money into one of Salvation Army's red kettles yet this year? An anonymous donor is hoping his pledge to match each donation made Saturday up to $25,000 will sweeten the pot.
Typically, the Wauwatosa-based chapter of the Salvation Army that serves Wisconsin and Upper Michigan takes in $14,000 per day in its kettles. Since donations are down this year, Salvation Army officials would like to see the donor max out his match.
Money raised during the organization's holiday campaign pays for its toys shop and Christmas feast, as well as emergency shelter, medical and food services throughout the year.
