CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- The holiday season may be over, but the Salvation Army of Corning still needs people to give back in the new year. Despite making headway after the holiday season ended, the organization still needs to raise $20,000 for the new year to reach their fundraising goal of $70,000. 

The money that gets raised from donations and the red kettle fundraiser goes right back into helping people in the community in 2024. These donations help people in need with utility bills, food, rental assistance, emergency housing, and day-to-day programs.  

Mary Ellen Monahan, the Volunteer Director for the Children's Program, said the theme for this fundraiser is "love beyond” because the work that the Salvation Army of Corning does lasts all year long. 

“We just continue to work at it,” she said. “We adjust what we're doing and, you know, hopefully we'll be able to help as many people as we can by people still giving.”
