MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The Salvation Army says they have raised close to $440,000 for the 2022 Christmas campaign. The goal was $525,000.

The non-profit continues to accept cash/coin/check at 700 S Riverfront Drive or donors can text “KatoCares” to 24365.

“We are very excited about this progress” said Captain Andy Wheeler, one of the corps officers in Mankato in a statement. “Given the state of the economy, inflation, and the extremely cold temperatures we experienced in December – this number is remarkable. We are still holding out hope for a miracle and will accept donations towards this effort through the end of January.”
