BLACKFOOT â€” Bingham County residents proved generous in their donations to the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign.
More than $4,200 in donations were collected from the kettlesâ€”$1,700 more than last year.
The Southeastern Idaho Community Action Agency's Bingham County office is the local Salvation Army service extension. SEICAA coordinates volunteers for the kettles and collects and distributes the funds collected to the local community.
"My goal was to go over $4,000," Bingham County SEICAA Program Coordinator Bobette Jackson said. "Next year we would like to hit $5,000."
