DECATUR -- You always know the holiday season has come when the sound of bells welcomes you to the grocery store. The Red Kettle Campaign kickoff starts Friday.

Each year, the Salvation Army collects donations to keep it running. In Macon County, the goal is to collect $390,000.

Organizers say, because of the economy, they expect to help 10% more people this year. This is the Salvation Army's largest fund-raising opportunity for the year.
