GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Salvation Army of Brown County exceeded its fundraising goal during last week's Christmas in July campaign.
Salvation Army leaders say they raised $19,000 during the bell-ringing campaign. Their goal was to raise about $15,000.
The charity group held the fundraising effort to make up for a shortfall in its Red Kettle campaign last Christmas season.
Salvation Army says money will go toward programs ranging from food, to rent, to energy assistance.
