CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Still have some Christmas shopping to finish?

If you are heading out to local stores there’s an even greater reason to throw a few dollars, or your spare change into a Salvation Army red kettle.

According to Captain Ronnie Amick, a generous donor is offering to match kettles this Saturday, December 19th in Cape Girardeau.

The donor will match money collected at kettles up to $8,000.

“Help us, help others by reaching our goal of $327,000 to support our life changing programs,” said Captain Ronnie Amick.

Amick says the Cape Girardeau area Salvation Army is currently at 51 percent of its goal.

They are behind roughly 15 to 20 percent.
