ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The Salvation Army is still seeking the public's help.
While the holiday season has ended, the organization said it did not meet its goal for the annual Red Kettle Campaign. Money collected in the kettles goes to programs that provide meals, shelter and holiday gifts for families in need.
The Salvation Army believes unrest in the St. Louis area affected some of the operations.
The Salvation Army has raised only 60 percent of its goal for the Tree of Lights campaign. The campaign runs through January.
