ALBANY, GA (WALB) – It hasn't been the best year for non-profits but the Salvation Army is still very happy with your kettle campaign contributions.

This year the non-profit had as many as 13 bell ringers collecting money.

Their goal was $70,000 they came in about five thousand dollars short collecting $65,200.

Each year they raise they goal to keep up with their needs.

"In last three years this is the highest amount we've raised I'm proud of Albany and very proud of what they've done again. There's an increase in almost everything you can imagine, between resources, staff coast, that's why we try to raise the goal because the need is increased, especially with the economy the way it is," said Capt. Doug McClure, Salvation Army.

The Red Kettle Campaign makes up about 10 percent of Salvation Army's annual budget and helps pay for various programs year round.
