The Army's campaign
The Salvation Army in St. Joseph County says that it aims to raise
$125,000 through its Red Kettle campaign, which is more than a third
of the overall goal of $340,000 for its holiday campaign. Money raised
will be used to provide food and financial assistance to needy
households for utilities, mortgage and rent.
The campaign's honorary chairman is a neighbor, Andrew Berlin, who's
owner of the South Bend Silver Hawks, who play in the Coveleski
Stadium just down Western Avenue from the Salvation Army's new Kroc
