(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The clock is ticking on the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign.

With less than two weeks until Christmas, the Salvation Army is lagging behind its goal.

The campaign is currently sitting at 47 percent of its $125,000 goal.

"We got a long ways to go in two weeks," said LeeAnn Hobson, Salvation Army.

The kettle campaign is the Salvation Army's biggest fundraiser of the year.

Money raised from the kettles supports several Salvation Army programs.

"It helps with the shelter. We have families we are helping now that will help them with food and clothing. It supports our food pantry, it goes toward the youth programs here at Salvation Army, helps with clothing vouchers at our store and it keeps the lights on in this building."

Bell ringers are collecting donations at 12 sites across St. Joseph.

Friday night's rainfall brought anywhere between 1-5 inches of rain across the area and the threat for more rain tonight could lead to increased flooding potential into Sunday.
