There is good news for the Salvation Army bell ringers in Des Moines — the Red Kettle campaign is improving.

The Salvation Army says the campaign is still running behind last year’s pace, but the gap is narrowing.

So far, more than $432,000 has been raised. That’s eight-percent less than where it was a year ago, but that’s an improvement over the 10-percent deficit a week ago.

The Salvation Army’s goal is to raise $1.2 million through the campaign this year.
