CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The Salvation Army is asking for Eastern Iowans to continue their generosity past Christmas.
The Red Kettle bells have finished ringing, but the annual donation goal has yet to be met.
Currently, The Salvation Army in Cedar Rapids has raised 79% of their goal with $592,648. Another $157,352 needs to be raised in order to meet the $750,000 goal.
Officials say the goal is about 40% of the annual operating budget which helps provide a community meal program, rent and utility assistance, supplemental food boxes, senior services, youth character building and after school programs, and various other social services.
