FARGO — The Fargo-Moorhead Salvation Army raised just over $890,000 during its annual red kettle campaign.
The organization beat its 2019 fundraising total by $40,000, even during the pandemic.
It says kettle donations were down nearly $60,000, but online, mail, and drop off donations boomed.
Major Jerry O'Neil with the Salvation Army says he was incredibly grateful for the support during a difficult time.
"It represents a lot of folks who have said, you know what, 'There are folks that might have typically given that aren't able to give, and I'm going to give a little extra so I can cover that for someone else this year," he said.
Major O'Neil says he hopes to resume in person dining at the Salvation Army this year, when it's safe.
