The Salvation Army's 2012 Red Kettle Campaign raised $572,600.81 that will be used to aid the poor in the Toledo area, officials announced Tuesday.
The amount exceeded the $550,000 collected in 2011, and also was greater than the 2012 goal of $570,000, Salvation Army Captain Kevin Zanders said during a news conference at The Anderson's general store in Maumee.
