In that time, though, the Salvation Army says the campaign has raised $170,000, or just over 87% of their $195,000 goal.

"The Kettle Drive is our largest fundraiser of the year - it's our annual fund drive, so it helps us cover our seasonal expenses as well as help us with our overhead for operations", Hughes said.

"We match their kettle drive on two Saturdays in December, so this year we matched $25,000", said Mike.

Welk said past year they raised about $8,000.

"We're asking people to help The Salvation Army, they do incredible work in this state, you know, whenever we need them not just the holiday season, you need them, you call them and they are there", said Mayor Walsh.

Donations are still being accepted until 7:00 p.m. this Saturday.

Pavlakis, who worked with the organization for 14 years, says he has not seen anything like this.

"I've got a crew starting at seven tomorrow, they'll run straight through to six, and we've got about 30 to 40 people per shift, we have three shifts, so you figure the math about 120 people", Bob Ilk, Christmas Family Feast lead chef, said.

This makes the second consecutive year a gold coin has been dropped into a Louisville Red Kettle.

"They don't ask for themselves, but to give to others", O'Mara said. "But we are still having less kettle sites".
