Christmas is still months away, but The Salvation Army will be collecting money through their Kettle Campaign now until Saturday.

The collection will take place at stores in Lexington and Georgetown as part of Doing the Most Good Week.

The Christmas Kettle Campaign fell short of its goal by $20,000 in Fayette County and $5,000 in Scott County, but now one donor has now offered to match contributions up to $10,000.

Kettle contributions will help fund the emergency shelter for women and children, food pantries, emergency assistance programs, and youth education programs.

In Lexington, you can donate at Fayette Mall, Kroger on Beaumont Centre, Kroger on Richmond Road, Walmart on Nicholasville Road, Richmond Road, or New Circle Road, and at Sam's Club on Nicholasville Road.

In Georgetown, you can donate at Walmart and Kroger.

You can also donate here.
