LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Salvation Army kicked off its 126th annual Red Kettle campaign Wednesday at Fourth Street Live!

Bells will be ringing at more than 70 locations across Louisville during the campaign. The Louisville Salvation Army raised more than $460,000 last year for area children and families. 

This year's goal is $475,000.

Maj. Roy Williams, area commander for the Louisville Salvation Army, says they hope to be able to provide for everyone in need. 

"You never know what the need is, and this year it has grown a little bit, but we will be able to handle all those children and all those families with the support of this community that has done such a good job for us," Williams said. 

The Red Kettle campaign runs through Christmas Eve.
