Salvation Army's Kettle Campaign needs your help

Lawton, Okla._If you pass a Salvation Army kettle, try to drop a little something -- or even a big something -- as in folding money -- in it.

Captain Ernest Hull of the Lawton Salvation Army says this year's Kettle Campaign is down by $10,000 from the same time last year.

" I think the economy is just affecting a lot of folks this year. Our general donations seem to be down," Hull said.

It's significant because the Kettle Campaign brings in 40% of its overall income.

The Salvation Army is non-profit and provides food, clothing and shelter to the needy every day.

There are not many days left in the bell-ringing season -- and this Saturday should be a big day.

When you are out and about Saturday, you're going to see volunteers manning the kettles from organizations such as the Lawton Constitution, Cameron University and your 7 News Station.

So dig deeply, if you can.
