(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The holidays are over which means the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign has come to an end.

The organization set their campaign goal this year at $350,000. Unfortunately, the Salvation Army didn't quite hit the mark.

Altogether, the organization raised $290,500, or about 83 percent of their overall goal.

The Salvation Army said being short by almost $60,000 will have an impact on them.

"When we are short $60,000 of our campaign - already on a shoe string budget - it hurts," Major Abe Tamayo, Salvation Army, said. "So we just ask the community again to think - to reconsider a gift."

The organization's Booth Center is still at full capacity. 

The Salvation Army will also be open on Sundays throughout the winter from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. as a cold weather shelter.

Another beautiful day across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. A weak cold front has moved by and we will see some cooling across the area. Highs will cool down in to the 50s Wednesday and Thursday.
